Lunchtime Lecture - 'Creating Healthy Places: Lendlease Case Studies'

Join Future Cities Catapult in a Lunchtime Lecture to learn how the built environment can affect people’s health.


Across the city, we are seeing an ongoing decline in many measures of health and wellbeing. The good news is that, as an industry, we are in a unique position to have a major positive impact.

Our speaker Matt Smith, Sustainability Manager at Lendlease will discuss trends in physical and mental wellbeing and the impact that the built environment can, and must, have on people’s health.

Giving examples from two of Lendlease’s London projects, Elephant Park and IQL, Matt will highlight some of the key design elements and the positive impact that they will have on people who live, work and visit the developments.

He will look to the future of urban design, discussing how we can continue to evolve the built environment to promote health.
