Imperfect Health: The Medicalization of Architecture exhibition in Canada examines how architecture can affect our health and wellbeing. It showcases a variety of architectural and urban solutions that address our health, including Maggie’s Centre for cancer treatment in Glasgow, Scotland, designed by Dutch architectural firm OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture).
The exhibition explores how efforts to improve health for all often have mixed results, due to the inherent complexities and contradictions in creating architecture that works for everyone.
Imperfect Health: The Medicalization of Architecture takes place at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montréal, until April 1 2012. Read more about OMA in OMA/Progress, Inside the Architectural Powerhouse.
