Does Architecture Make You Anxious?

Output Type:Presentation
Venue:Manchester Lecture Theatre, All Saints Building

Mental health issues are becoming more prevalent among young people, and those studying at architecture schools are no exception. This provocation will present two personal views exploring anxiety found in the education, profession and, perhaps even, the discipline of architecture.

This week's 'Provocation' has been instigated by Architecture students who would like to open up a public debate about whether it is inevitable that studying or practicing the arts is a challenge to people's mental health. Are there systemic problems within Arts and Humanities professions and how they are taught? And if so, what could we do about it?
