“In tune with the environment, others & ourselves.”
Contemporary urban environments are often visually appealing and technologically advanced, but less often designed to help us feel good. Studies show that contemporary urban environments are either sensory-overwhelming or sensory-depleting, causing physical, mental and emotional stress. According to WHO, this stress is the major cause of exhaustion, depression, and disease in the developed world.
As contemporary citizens we need to establish a mind-body-space connection. By mindfully observing our body and mind, as well as designing and modifying our immediate environments accordingly, you are taking an active part in creating a healthy and meaningful life in the city. We designed two approaches that are helping you towards achieving this goal: The Urban Yoga (TUY) photos and Mindful Spatial Experiencing (MSE) activities.
