Social Factors & Sustainability

"Our bodies, our health, and our buildings are forever connected. The links between architecture and well-being are richer than merely affording safety from injury; buildings can be, should be, agents of health -- physical, mental, and social health. Good buildings and urban plans do precisely that." 

--Richard J. Jackson (Rainwater, Brown, & Harber, 2012; p. 2)
