Shelter the Body, Nurture the Soul: panel discussion on the healing and nurturing abilities of architecture.
The term “healing architecture” is usually applied to the planning and construction of healthcare facilities. Ukraine’s future rebuilding will bring the importance of the healing and nurturing abilities of architecture to a completely different level. Huge sacrifices that Ukrainians have to make every day and enormous trauma caused by the brutality of war call for a completely new approach to rebuilding. This encompasses not just restoring the lost housing stock and building necessary infrastructure and public spaces, but creating an environment that nourishes human dignity, fosters equality, provides safety and promotes healthy life.
