The Exhibition
 
How does our built environment affect us? This major exhibition about health and architecture examines the positive and negative influence buildings have on our physical and mental health.
 
Architects, planners and designers can have a powerful influence on our health and self-esteem, as well as ideas around community and society.
 
We spend more time than ever within the structures of our cities, and more people than ever live in metropolitan areas. The recent tragedy at Grenfell Tower in west London, in which 72 people lost their lives, draws urgent attention to the connections between our homes and health, as well as to wider social and political priorities.
 
In this exhibition, examine some of the ways in which architecture and the built environment interact with concerns of health and wellbeing. From the slums of 19th-century London to the bold experiments of postwar urban planners to therapeutic spaces for people affected by cancer, look anew at the buildings that surround us and shape us.
