The Placing of Remedy
This project focuses on the provision of a Youth Well-Being Centre for North-East Cambridge. It is part of a wider urban response to the city’s health inequalities, recognising the cost this has for both one’s life chances and the local economy, and the alignment of such endeavours with sustainability. Understanding the influence that the built environment has over one’s physical, mental and social health is central to these urban and architectural proposals. The form and function of these propositions will examine how architecture can house vital resources whilst actively forming a restorative setting through biophilia - demonstrating how this intersects with communicating value and worth to otherwise deprived communities.
