In order to explore how the socio-political determinants of health in the built environment might inform the design of public space, major works of literature on the socio-politics of space and public health were reviewed. Tactical Urbanism and Integral Urbanism were selected as key models, which formed the basis of my theoretical framework. Data from the Active Neighbourhoods Project offered citizen input on areas for improvement in the selected community of Bridgeland, in Calgary, Canada. The key themes from the lilterature were laid out as a ‘thematic grid’, which was applied to selected neighbourhood sites in order to identify site-specific opportunities. These opportunities formed site-specific design objectives for the proposed redevelopment of a demonstration site: the Luke’s Drug Mart Plaza site in NorthEast Calgary.
