We shape ourselves, and are shaped in return, by the walls that contain us. In his new book ‘Living with Buildings’,Iain Sinclair takes us from stacked tower blocks to humming hospitals and from the blackened hull of a Spitalfields church to the floating mass of Le Corbusier’s radiant city. Come and listen as Observer architecture critic Rowan Moore facilitates this session about Iain Sinclair's series of expeditions to explore the relationship between sickness and structure, and the detours he took along the way.
As part of our major exhibition ‘Living with Buildings’, explore how 3D flat-pack technology can help meet the needs of refugees. In response to the mission of the Global Clinic, an innovative mobile clinic designed for ‘Living with Buildings’, a group of young people were challenged to design products that would support refugees’ health and wellbeing. See their sketches, scale drawings, models and prototypes and listen to an interview with Ellen Waters from Doctors of the World about what it’s like to live and work in a refugee camp.
Our biology is set up to work in partnership with the sun. From our sleep cycles to our immune systems and our mental health, access to sunlight is crucial for living a happy and fulfilling life. Bursting with cutting-edge science and eye-opening advice, ‘Chasing the Sun’ explores the extraordinary significance of sunlight – including ancient solstice celebrations, modern sleep labs, and what the Amish know about sleep that the rest of us don't.
As more of us move into light-polluted cities, spending our days in dim offices and our evenings watching brightly lit screens, we are in danger of losing something vital: our connection to the star that gave us life. It’s a loss that could have far-reaching consequences that we're only just beginning to grasp. Join science journalist Linda Geddes in conversation about her new book ‘Chasing the Sun’ to rethink the significance of sunlight in all our lives.
