Apparently today is World Architecture Day, carrying the theme "Architecture for Well-being." A few book recommendations based on the theme (linked to my reviews):
The Shaping of Us: How Everyday Spaces Structure Our Lives, Behavior, and Well-Being by Lily Bernheimer (Trinity University Press, 2019)
Welcome to Your World: How the Built Environment Shapes Our Lives by Sarah Williams Goldhagen (Harper, 2017)
The Agile City: Building Well-being and Wealth in an Era of Climate Change by James S. Russell (Island Press, 2011)
Cities for People by Jan Gehl (Island Press, 2010)
