Sobre o livro
Data has illustrated the growing threat of childhood obesity which has also led to extreme body surveillance. The rise of social media has also played a role in negative body image and stereotypes for adolescents from grades 7 -9th, resulting in psychological consequences. The repercussion is the difficulty of achieving a healthy life, especially with countless barriers, including the lack of knowledge of what being healthy really means. This project seeks to examine the positive impact architecture and design can have on creating an inclusive, and comfortable space that allows for convenience, learning, growth, and empowerment. Designs that include elements like motivational qualities, such as music, and group support can empower individuals to pursue a healthy lifestyle and encourage inclusion and acceptance regarding their body image.
