Worldwide, sedentary behaviours and overweight are major health concerns. Most adolescents are insufficiently physically active and have overweight. Moreover, most work is sedentary or requires only light activity. And most people live in cities, a context which discourages participation in physical activity. How can we change this situation? An analogy between urban design and facility design is introduced to elucidate spatial properties that may be beneficial in both contexts. It is the purpose of this paper to use this analogy for the advancements of health and well-being of both workers and city dwellers.
