Item description for Constructing Happiness by Jane Wernick...

The Building Happiness project was started by Building Futures early in 2007, with the aim of discussing whether the way we design our built environment can have a direct bearing on how happy we feel. Can we construct happiness?
The book follows on from numerous consultative initiatives, including a public debate hosted in May 2007, with the aim of gathering public and informed opinion on the subject.
We spoke to a number key thinker and practitioners to share their thoughts. Architects, artists, policy advisors, developers, engineers and health researchers have all contributed. In addition, we have asked people who use and inhabit our built environment to describe places which do indeed make them happy, including the journalist Kirsty Wark, the sculptor Antony Gormley, the architect Richard Rogers, and the Young Vic Theatre Director David Lan.
This book aims to provoke discussion amongst all those who inhabit, plan or design our built spaces, and to encourage the professionals to keep happiness at the centre of their work.
