We are a design and research lab based at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) using design to improve the health and well-being of individuals and communities.
We believe that well-designed built environments can enrich individuals' lives and contribute to the broader society. In order to provide better built environments to communities, we are dedicated to rigorously researching the relationships between space and people, with a primary goal of improving users’ health and wellbeing through design.
Addressing emerging social issues, we investigate and analyze various areas in multiple scales from tool development, facility planning, architectural/urban design, and guideline development. Current research topics include healthy community design, design strategies for aging-in-place, and healthcare facility design for improved teamwork and health.
Led by Dr. Lisa Lim, we work as a multi-disciplinary group closely interacting with healthcare professionals, psychologists, designers as well as experts in other disciplines.
