Principles of salutogenic architecture design

Architecton: Proceedings of Higher Education №1 (85) March, 2024

Growing chronic diseases among city dwellers, rapidly spreading epidemics due to increased mobility lifestyles, and the consequences of forced isolation in response to the recent global pandemic command the attention of researchers in various fields of knowledge to the modeling of a salutogenic habitat in modern cities. The aim of this study is to identify the principles of architecture that contributes to human health and general well-being. In particular, the study seeks to develop a theoretical model of salutogenic architecture; review domestic and international theoretical studies and design developments devoted to various aspects of salutogenic architecture and of salutogenesis; and analyze techniques of form generation, functional planning and environmental organization of architecture, especially residential complexes and urban clusters that meet the criteria of salutogenesis. The following principles have been identified: balance, symbiosis and hybridization, variation and integration, transformation, stimulation and discharge, meaningfulness and manifestation, controllability and autonomy. The identified principles and techniques allow the design process and search for architectural form for residential urban clusters to be appropriately adjusted to achieve a salutogenic built environment.
