The Gemini centre HelsA - Health promoting architecture and surroundings
HelsA's vision is to develop an internationally outstanding centre where knowledge, education and research together will contribute to a societal development where focusing on the physical environment for good public health is a natural part of creating a better society.
HEALTH – QUALITY OF LIFE – WELLBEING
HelsA is created in the everyday life; in meetings between people, through physical movement, sensual experiences; activities that provide quality of life and are influenced by factors other than those created in the health sector.
Our physical surroundings are important contributors to the great public "health calculation", but the health effect has received little attention. The Gemini centre HelsA will contribute to create a greater awareness of the positive health effects of well-designed physical environments.
