The Science Library is curated collection of topics that underpin and drive our work.
In this section we break down well known themes and articulate through our lens their importance to understanding people in the built environment.
This resource is to further knowledge for the curious and learn more about how we approach solving human related problems.
POVERTY, HOMELESSNESS & PTSD
Poverty and homelessness are culturally perceived through the lenses of economics and politics. However, as neuroscience advances, we are starting to understand that there is a crucial biological aspect to poverty. This evidence will allow us to understand the long term mental and physical health implications of poverty and homelessness.
INFRASTRUCTURE & INEQUALITY
The distribution of urban infrastructure leads to inequality of experience in cities. Often resulting in environmental racism as certain communities face the pollution and stressor consequences of unnecessary movements.
WELLBEING & STRESS
At Centric Lab we define ‘wellbeing’ as a constantly adaptive process by which we aim to reach physical and mental homeostasis or equilibrium. Homeostasis is maintained by using mental, social and physical resources to react to mental, social, and physical challenges presented to us by our environment.
