With support from the Contemplative Sciences Center, Asa’s research titled “Landscapes of Longevity” has been investigating physical aspects of landscape that enable healthy communities, as well as the importance of a “sense of place” in fostering mental, spiritual, and social well-being. With research partner Harriett Jameson, this research will culminate in publications and a documentary film scheduled for the spring of 2014.

Harriett’s design and research interests include understanding how place works synthetically to foster well-being and incorporating holistic ideas of health—including spiritual, mental, and non-Western concepts—into design and planning. Her current MLA thesis is using the Landscapes of Longevity research to cultivate design strategies for public places that can support healthy aging. She is also a researcher for the Biophilic Cities Project.
