Event description
Can good design truly make us happier? Join Ben Channon, architect & author, to learn how the buildings around us can improve our wellbeing.

About this Event

We all know that where we live is important, but do we really understand how and why our homes affect how we feel? In this talk, industry expert Ben Channon explains many of the ways that the buildings around us can make us happier, and how we can all make small changes to the places we live to improve how we feel.

Ben Channon is an architect, author, TEDx speaker and mental wellbeing advocate, and is well known in the industry as a thought leader in designing for happiness and wellbeing. He is an Associate at Assael Architecture, where he works as an architect and their head of research into design for wellbeing.

He developed an interest in design for mental health, wellbeing and happiness after suffering with anxiety problems in his mid-twenties. This led him to research the relationship between buildings and happiness, which formed the basis of his first book: Happy by Design.

Ben recently qualified as a WELL Accredited Professional, broadening his knowledge to encompass design for physical wellbeing. He now works with developers and consultants to improve how buildings support mental and physical health.

In 2017 Ben co-founded the Architects’ Mental Wellbeing Forum, which is focused on improving mental health within the industry. He is also an accredited mindfulness practitioner with the Mindfulness Association, and is interested in how buildings can help us to be more mindful, and present every day.

The talk will begin at 7.15 pm and will be followed by a drinks reception.
