Event description

Description

Housing is one of our most basic needs and is more than just a roof over our heads. The places we live affect our health in many ways, from the materials used in construction to the urban planning that locates and shapes our built environment.

Set against the backdrop of the current housing crisis can we avoid the mistakes of the past and create a healthier, happier environment? How can the urgent need for mass housing be met whilst ensuring that the housing we deliver has a positive effect on our health and wellbeing?

Join architects Sarah Wigglesworth, Alex Ely (Mae Architects) and Simon Bayliss (HTA) for an examination of the role of architects in creating housing that gives us more than shelter.



This event is in partnership with UWE and is the public launch event for the academic conference Health: The Design, Planning and Politics of How and Where We Live (25-26 Jan). The conference is organised by the interdisciplinary research organisation AMPS (Architecture, Media, Politics, Society); its academic journal Architecture_MPS; the Department of Architecture and the WHO Collaborating Centre at the University of the West of England. It forms part of the AMPS programme of events, Housing – Critical Futures.
