Happy City Lab

The way we design buildings, neighbourhoods, and city systems has a profound effect on human well-being. At Happy City Lab, we help build healthier, happier neighborhoods and cities by shining light on the intersection of urban design and well-being. Our work is grounded in evidence from psychology, neuroscience, public health, and behavioral economics. Our inspiration comes from urban innovations around the world. Our toolbox includes workshops, presentations, participatory events, and direct consultation with clients. We also create immersive experiments that transform participants’ understanding of their cities. Happy City Lab works with developers, planners, governments, museums, non-governmental organizations, and citizens, using a broad palette of methods.
