What is architecture’s impact on the physical and social wellness of society? Why are our buildings making us sicker? MASS Design Group explores these questions and more in its latest book, The Architecture of Health: Hospital Design and the Construction of Dignity (Nov. 2021), published by Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum (Artbook DAP, distributors). The book examines how our built world was shaped by disease and reveals how historical examples can offer us caution and inspiration. Join us for a virtual book talk with author Michael Murphy, Founding Principal and Executive Director of MASS Design Group, in conversation with Michael Kimmelman, architecture critic for the New York Times. Join the Smithsonian's Cooper Hewitt Museum and others for this timely talk.
