The Bartlett


Bartlett members contribute to Well Built exhibition

4 November 2016

health and wellbeing in cities

The Museum of Architecture has launched its new Well Built exhibition, which includes contributions from several members of The Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment.

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

Kerstin Sailer (Space Syntax Laboratory) has been closely involved in advising the Museum on the content. She has not been alone as Bartlett and UCL alumna Rosie Haslem (now Director of Workplace Consultancy at Spacelab) has written copy for the exhibition’s Workplace section.

Harriet Richardson of the Survey of London (part of the School of Architecture), has written the introduction for Healthcare.

The exhibition’s focus on health and wellbeing within the built environment is an example of increasing interest in the topic within research and industry, also signalled by the launch of a new MSc in Health, Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings by the Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering.

The exhibition aims to explore the historical relationship between health and the city, and point to the need of reshaping assumptions about health, place and space.

Well Built runs until 29 November and is free to attend.
