The Museum of Architecture is launching ‘Well Built: Designing for Health and Wellbeing in Architecture’ on 1st November and have invited Penoyre & Prasad to include the New QEII Hospital.

The exhibition traces new ways of thinking about health and wellbeing beyond the design of traditional therapeutic environments towards a more integrated approach that includes everyday spaces.

The exhibition is divided into five different sections, each of which examines a specific building typology – hospitals and health centres, housing, workplaces, schools and public spaces. Demonstrating the enduring historical relationship between health and the city, Well Built points to the urgent need in reshaping our assumptions about health, place and space. Projects included in the exhibition range from floating lidos to pop-up cultural centres for the elderly, alternative healthcare spaces to new co-housing schemes.

Dates: 1 November – 29 November 2016
Opening hours: 10am – 7pm
Venue: 10 Thurloe Place, South Kensington, SW7 2RZ London
This exhibition is FREE to attend.
