This major exhibitions explores the pivotal role of design and urban planning in human health.

Living with Buildings examines how the structures that surround us shape our mental and physical health in both positive and negative ways. From Dickensian slums to high-rise towers, and infirmary tents to modernist sanatoriums, this is the first exhibition to chart how shifts in thinking and approaches to design have impacted on health and wellbeing.

Featuring over 100 objects including the work of artists such as Andreas Gursky, Rachel Whiteread and Giles Round, it will consider the perspectives of those who use buildings to live in and heal, as well as those who design them.
