During 'Landscapes of Care', through a focus on 'Health and Architecture' we look at health as an architectural leitmotif that has been crucial to the development of society.
We look at the historical background to decorate and subordinate ourselves both physically and structurally from a modern ideal of bodily health in particular. How does medical progress manifest itself in architecture and the city? And how is mental health also viewed in construction?
Furthermore, can we talk about health as something other than a concept of medicine, but use it as a tool to shed light on the state of architecture itself? What does it really mean to build healthy today?
These are just some of our entries to talk about health and architecture as we examine the landscapes of care on CAFx Journal and at the festival in 2021.
