With several Happiness Indices being developed by experts across the world, ensuring happiness in the lives of common people is increasingly becoming an important priority for civic authorities.

This talk focuses on how design may contribute towards this happiness, and presents an exploration into the association of neighbourhood design with happiness, particularly referring to outdoor shared spaces. The talk will be followed by the screening of a 26-minute video film titled ‘HAPPINESS by Design?’ conceptualized, produced and directed by the speaker.
