Please join Parlour, UQ Architecture and SAHANZ for the first LAB of 2021, Architecture for Joy / Joy for Architecture. Rebecca McLaughlan and Naomi Stead will discuss their research into architecture and wellbeing in conversation with Kali Marnane and Macarena de la Vega de León.

Naomi and Rebecca will begin the event with short presentations. They will then join Macarena and Kali in a discussion about the intersections of architecture and wellbeing – from Naomi’s new research project into mental wellbeing in the architecture profession, to Rebecca’s work on the potential of architectural spaces to improve patient wellbeing.

To get in the mood, watch Naomi’s conversation with Ben Channon at Transformations, and read about Rebecca’s current research project, Designing for Palliative Care.
