Abstract

Purpose: This systematic literature review focuses on original research that examines the effect of persuasive architectural interventions on stimulating health behaviour. This review will give an overview of the empirical evidence available and aims to examine the evidence for health behaviour change through architectural interventions and the underlying theoretical pathways and mechanisms using Social Cognitive Theory (SCT). Methodology This article reviewed 36 peer-reviewed articles found through scopus, google scholar and a supplementary hand search and examined for effect, type of interventions, type of behaviour and underlying mechanisms using SCT. Findings This review shows that architectural interventions can stimulate healthy behaviour. However, much of the research focuses on specific health behaviours (physical activity), in specific target groups (children or older adults) and with specific types of interventions (supplying provisions). Furthermore, the effect of the physical environment on cognitive factors should be taken into consideration. Implications Hardly any research on smart architectural interventions for health behaviour change exists, but combining insights from product design and built environment has the potential to impact designing for health behaviour change. Value Stimulating certain types of health behaviour can positively contribute to health goals and has been the focus of many health promotion practitioners over the years. The focus of health promotion interventions has primarily been on social and psychological factors. However, current research shows the importance of the physical environment as influence on health behaviour. Potentially, with the use of smart technology, this effect could be enhanced.
