What Is Evidence Based Design? 

Evidence-based design is an approach to designing environments, such as buildings or spaces, based on research and scientific evidence. This design approach relies on research to identify the best practices and design strategies that can improve the well-being, health, and productivity of the people who will use the environment. Overall, evidence-based design seeks to create spaces that not only look aesthetically pleasing but also have a positive impact on the people who will use them.

Where To Start Learning About Evidence Based Design

You can learn more about evidence based design through the Center For Health Design and Plane Tree, two organizations that have a major focus on designing spaces that support functionality.
