Architecture as antidote: should cities make us fit?
4th July, 7pm – 9pm, Henry Wellcome Auditorium, Wellcome Trust, 183 Euston Road, London
A panel of architects and health experts debate the role of architecture and cities in creating healthy lifestyles. Should architects be part of the growing campaign of “fit cities”, or does this represent the medicalisation of architecture?
The debate will be chaired by Claire Fox, Director of the Institute of Ideas. Speakers include Mirko Zardini, Director of the Canadian Centre for Architecture and curator of the recent exhibition Imperfect Health: the Medicalization of Architecture; David Burney, Commissioner of New York Dept. Design & Construction; Richard Horton, Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet and Teva Hesse, Director at CF Møller Architects.
