Living with Buildings

Audio-described tour

Live audio-described tour of the exhibition Living with Buildings, a major exhibition about health and architecture that 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.

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.

The exhibition includes works by Andreas Gursky, Rachel Whiteread and Martha Rosler, buildings designed by Lubetkin, Goldfinger and Aalto, and a new commission by artist Giles Round exploring the role colour can play in making us feel better.
