We believe the accepted notion of sustainability must be expanded beyond technical materials and methods to embrace elements that allow humans to not merely survive, but to thrive. In other words, we must build for thrive-ability on a social, intellectual, environmental and economic level.
We see an overarching, pressing need to identify and nurture a demand for buildings and places that cause health rather merely than aspire to stop doing harm.
The distinction between causing health and preventing degradation is crucial. The cause health view is focused on leveraging human assets and capabilities—regardless of their current state—and engages us in building on these strengths to optimize health.
