Living City: The Anatomy of a Green Capital
Exhibition: Wednesday 7 May to Sunday 10 August 2014
'Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing – not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.' World Health Organisation constitution
Just as the health of individuals relies on a balance of body mind and spirit, the health of a city also relies on a shared condition of physical mental and social well-being. Using a ‘city as body’ analogy, this exhibition explores what is needed to make a healthy, happy city.
The exhibition centres around a model made by Amalgam for the Centre for Sustainable Energy, as well as case studies and key documents, alongside activities for families and a large unusual portrait of Bristol by artist Andy Council.
