How do the built environment and the physical objects and structures we encounter affect our mood, health and overall outlook? Design is more than just the visioning of functional or aesthetic objects, and architecture is always embodied—when done right, it can uplift us. The latest print edition of Assemble Papers profiles people, projects and ideas that inspire social change, disrupting the ‘business-as-usual’ while delighting our senses. Join Sarah K (supercyclers), Jeremy McLeod (Breathe Architects), Dianne Vella-Brodrick (associate professor of Positive Psychology, University of Melbourne) and co-chairs Eugenia Lim and Rachel Elliot-Jones of Assemble Papers in a discussion exploring the nature of designing for wellbeing and a better world. Don’t leave without your free copy of the latest issue—delving deeper into the theme of this evening’s panel, it’s essential tram reading.
