ENVALYS was built on the foundation of the Cities That Sustain Us (CiSuUs) project, an international research and development project that started within Reykjavík University in 2013 in collaboration with Uppsala University in Sweden, the City of Reykjavík, Djúpavogshreppur municipality and TGJ, a design, consulting and research firm.
ENVALYS and Cities That Sustain Us has received grants from the Icelandic Research Fund (2014-2016) and the Technological Development Fund (2017-2019; 2020-2021; 2021-2022).
WE ARE ON A MISSION TO:
Advocate and support the design and development of sustainable communities, environments and structures that support the health and overall wellbeing of people and the planet.
ENVALYS has introduced, through its platform, a new methodology called Restorative Environmental Design (RED), a practical approach to design that is built on observed and measured data research and implementation, concerned with restorative environments.
ENVALYS works directly with both government and private organizations to help them design, plan and architect a future that supports the psychological and physical wellbeing of their communities to create healthier human spaces and restorative environments.
