FitNation is an exhibition that presents projects, both local and national, that exemplify architectural design, policy-driven and grassroots action, conceptual frameworks, and simple improvements which contribute to a healthier lifestyle for individuals and communities.
This exhibition highlights strategies which make the built environment more conducive to healthier lifestyles. Locating stairs for visibility or designing inviting streetscapes for pedestrians are examples of ways that architecture can provide opportunities to burn calories while creating quality spaces and engaging environments
With efforts such as New York City’s Active Design Guidelines, policy makers in city planning, transportation, health, design and construction have joined together to suggest ways that architects, landscape architects, and urban designers can be part of the solution to one of today’s most critical public health challenges.
