Living with Buildings

Coming this October, 'Living with Buildings' will explore how our built environment contributes to our physical and mental health in both positive and negative ways.

We spend more time than ever indoors. The approaches of architects, planners and designers can have a powerful influence on our feelings of individual wellbeing and self-esteem, on our community and society, as well as on our physical health. 

The exhibition will be accompanied by a new architectural commission, to be announced in early 2018. Find out more about our Call for Submissions.
