What is the meaning of home today and how does it shape us? Join us for a panel discussion, live on The Bartlett School of Architecture's YouTube channel, examining the connection between domesticity, well-being and ecology with Claire McAndrew, Senior Research Fellow in Public Engagement and Co-Director at Automated Architecture (AUAR) Labs, Gonzalo Herrero Delicado, architect and curator, Pati Santos, founder of The Good Thing, and Rosa Rogina, Head of Programming at the London Festival of Architecture.
Current global events have shown a need to increase our attention towards health and well-being, in particular in our living spaces. We need to rethink the environments that we inhabit every day, understanding how they shape our lives and ourselves.
As a response to and takeover of AUAR’s House Block project in Clapton, Hackney, Gonzalo Herrero Delicado and The Good Thing show a modular prototype that invites visitors to explore a more humane design approach for existing domestic spaces, understanding these as diffused and boundless.
Within this context, the panel discussion will explore the potential to expand domestic interiors to create spaces that improve people’s physical and mental well-being and strengthen social connections.
