How does our built environment affect us? This major exhibition spanning two galleries examines the positive and negative influence buildings have on our health and wellbeing. From Dickensian London to the bold experiments of postwar urban planners, and from healing spaces for cancer patients to the role architecture can play in global healthcare provision, we look anew at the buildings that surround and shape us.

In Gallery 1, explore the pivotal influence of urban planning on our health and wellbeing through maps charting poverty in Victorian London and designs for garden cities and ideal villages. Discover the architectural design principles that inspired London’s health centres and their contribution to the treatment of tuberculosis.

The exhibition includes works by Andreas Gursky, Rachel Whiteread and Martha Rosler, buildings designed by Lubetkin, Goldfinger and Aalto, and a new commission by artist Giles Round exploring the role colour can play in making us feel better.

In Gallery 2, see an innovative mobile clinic developed by architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and humanitarian movement Doctors of the World to provide effective, adaptable healthcare in emergency situations.
