Exhibit looks at more than 100 years of design and wellness

October 19, 2018

A new show at London’s healthcare-focused gallery, the Wellcome Collection, chronicles the history of the built environment and wellbeing, according to an article on the Metropolis website.

The show  looks at “how architecture has shaped healthcare and how healthcare has affected architecture,” in the words of curator Emily Sargent.

The exhibit includes construction leftovers of Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners’ Global Clinic, a modular structure to deliver healthcare in remote locations.

The show also displays Charles Booth’s famous poverty maps of London from the late-19th century  that spurred philanthropists and the state to reconsider the relationship between the body, psychology, and architecture.
