London Festival of Architecture: Who cares about our health?\

Who is responsible for our health? What defines a 'healthy environment'? What impact can design have?

'Care' is the theme of this year’s London Festival of Architecture, so we’ve invited some of the most influential leaders from the fields of health, care and design to share their views on these vital questions.

In 2020, the UK government committed to building a raft of new hospitals as part of a £3.7 billion package. But do we really need them?

If hospitals are places one visits to be fixed, why not concentrate on how best to prevent us from becoming broken in the first place? Caring for our health - both physical and mental - when we’re designing buildings and places must be our priority. After all, prevention is better than cure.

Consider the barbershop and its positive effect on men’s mental health. Even the NHS recognises it, to the point of launching a training session for barbers last year, helping them spot the early signs of ill-health.
