Making Wellbeing is an exhibition and related programme that assembles key themes, recent explorations and interventions in the built environment that impact wellbeing at all stages of life, from birth to death.
In 2017, wellbeing is a benchmark that drives everything from government policy to classroom spaces, from the interior arrangement of offices to the design of buildings for care at the end-of-life.
But the term itself is a contested notion with many facets. Through a selection of major international architectural projects, new smart city technologies, research by ethnographers and academics, and even an interactive sleep pod, the exhibition gathers voices and knowledge from across the spectrum to offer insights and open up debate.
The exhibition is accompanied by a major event series and will be the key theme for the second issue of BE: the journal of The Built Environment Trust.
