BBC World Service and Wellcome Collection present The Evidence: Healthy Architecture in collaboration with Paimio Sanitorium and Magni Mundi

Come and listen in to the recording of a BBC World Service radio programme exploring the Paimio TB Sanitorium from an architectural, historical and contemporary health perspective. This discussion event is inspired by Wellcome Collection’s  recent ‘Living with Buildings’ exhibition, which explored the relationship between architecture and health. There will be the opportunity for the audience to join the conversation and ask their questions.

Confirmed speakers:
Heini Hakosalo, Tommi Lindh and Laura Arpiainen

This programme is part of ‘The Evidence, a series produced by the BBC World Service and Wellcome Collection to explore the challenges our world face today. The recordings of The Evidence 2019 will be broadcast on the BBC World Service on 20 April, 27 April and 4 May.

Wellcome Collection is a free museum and library in London that aims to challenge how we all think and feel about health. Their recent Living with Buildings exhibition featured the  Paimio Sanitorium, including a new artist commission by Giles Round. Their Global Clinic exhibition is open until 24 April.
