Imperfect Health: The Medicalization of Architecture
Canadian Centre for Architecture
October 25, 2011 to April 15, 2012
Health is a focus of contemporary political debate in a moment of historically high anxiety, but are architects, urban designers, and landscape architects seeking a new moral and political agenda within these concerns? Imperfect Health [is an exhibition that] examines the complexity of today’s interrelated and emerging health problems juxtaposed with a variety of proposed architectural and urban solutions. Imperfect Health was voted the Exhibition of the Year in 2012 by Design Observer. The exhibition included Front Studio's Q-CITY, a quarantine system designed to take advantage of the existing urban infrastructure.
