Tuesday, November 8th you can listen live to the RSA and Maggie’s Centers’ lecture on Architecture, Art and Wellbeing online for free right here. It’ll be at 6pm British time, or 1pm for East Coasters.
“The concept of ‘healing architecture’ has been developing over the last two decades and a large amount of research has been carried out into the impact of architectural design on the success of healthcare environments. Evidence that architects can significantly alter a patients’ experience and quality of life has led to a change in attitude and approach to designing spaces such as the Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres.
Architect Piers Gough, art critic Richard Cork and consultant Dr Sam Guglani discuss Maggie’s pioneering approach to cancer care, and how this collaborative approach can be replicated and used to influence policy to develop better environments for people in healthcare.”
