  27. 27. DESIGN FOR HEALTHY COMMUNITY It’s not just about BUILDINGS It’s about the connected fabric of our COMMUNITY Design for Healthy and Livable Community THE GOALS: How to create the Urban Fabric for our cities? We the architects must venture beyond the boundary of the buildings that we design. It is the spaces between the buildings, the spaces beyond property lines. It is the walk path, bike trails, public transportation, the connection between the parks and community places, and the cultural /socio-economic vibrancy that will create Healthy and Livable cities. Walk Path – The creation of neighborhood for a walkable community. Bicycle Path – Safe bike trails to access local parks, neighborhood centers and central business districts. TRANSPORTATIONS SYSTEM – How we promote our working and living arrangement to promote active walking PARKS & RECREATION – Better connected parks and promenade to link walk paths, bike trails and open-space COMMUNITY SPACES – Vibrant cultural center and community buildings and open plaza for public gatherings OPEN SPACES – Open and reserved spaces for vista, nature and wildlife CULTURAL / SOCIO- ECOMONIC – Underlying the physical built environment is our cultural heritage, the need for socialization and viable economic growth
