Post-Grad Mixer: Living with Buildings - Wellcome Collection


This event is open to all UAL postgraduate students and alumni

Meet other postgraduate students and alumni over breakfast at this Post-Grad Community Mixer. Hosted by the Wellcome Collection and our student ambassadors, breakfast will be followed by an exclusive tour of 'Living with Buildings' led by curator, Emily Sargent.

This major exhibition examines the positive and negative influence buildings have on our physical and mental health. Architects, planners and designers can have a powerful influence on our health and self-esteem, as well as ideas around community and society.

We spend more time than ever within the structures of our cities, and more people than ever live in metropolitan areas. The recent tragedy at Grenfell Tower in west London, in which 72 people lost their lives, draws urgent attention to the connections between our homes and health, as well as to wider social and political priorities.

The exhibition includes works by Andreas Gursky, Rachel Whiteread and Martha Rosler, buildings designed by Lubetkin, Goldfinger and Aalto, and a new commission by artist Giles Round exploring the role colour can play in making us feel better.
