Event description

Description

‘Buildings in the Making’ is an interdisciplinary research symposium, and end of project conference for the study Buildings in the Making: a sociological exploration of architecture for health and social care – funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (2015-2018). The aim of the conference is to create dialogue between sociology, anthropology, architecture and design, with a focus on architecture in health care and social care, in particular later life care. Although not health and social care professionals, architects are often employed to create settings where care takes place, and shape experiences in these contexts. While the focus of research has often been on individual buildings in use, the conference shifts the emphasis to the processes and practices of architectural design and construction, and how they shape the production of buildings for care.
