We have become an obese race, rapidly consuming even more than we physically can. This consumption is occurring at an alarming rate with no regard for the effects that our actions have not only on the health of environment but also indirectly on the health of current and future generations. Society is becoming more diseased and overweight everyday. The solution lies in the synthesis of three pillars: the policies and actions that pollute the environment, education on the importance of proper diet and exercise, and a more ‘fit’ architecture that works to improve the health of its inhabitants and surroundings. The site of Greenville, South Carolina was chosen because of its location in a state with: an obesity rate of 31.5% [second highest in the nation according to a 2010 survey by the Centers for Disease Control], higher than acceptable airborne pollutant levels, a crippled economy that has left many projects unfinished and ready to be FIT.
