The contemporary urban life is characterised by time consuming stressful journeys that end up in extremely privatised spaces with minimal opportunities for relaxed movement and functioning. The global pandemic has shed light on how our current systems of habitation, economy, healthcare and transportation are anything but mutually exclusive. Mindful architectural practices design inclusive spaces that attempt to keep people and their well being foremost.

WELLNESS CITY is an urban hybrid programme that reinterprets the city as a wellness first space while being conscious of the environmental situation. It binds together 5 elements namely - LIVE, WORK, PLAY, PRODUCE and CONSUME - to define a wellness form of living while bio-filtration as a facade system cleanses air pollution.
