F00-F99*


Future Architecture, we have a problem! (Don’t you?)
A call for a new thinking on mental health care and wellbeing: towards a manifesto for architecture as an infrastructure of care.

Type of project
  • Systemic changes

“The way we care for people with mental health problems is creating a hidden human rights emergency” (Kinderman, 2019): we believe that mental health is beyond a personal issue, it is rather a social challenge. By addressing mental health, F00-F99 aims to establish a school of thought for a shift in the ethics of architecture. We call for a systemic change by going beyond the borders of the discipline, working across scales and collaborating with experts from different fields. Through a series of public events, such as those facilitated by the FA platform, as well as workshops, webinars, publications, and exhibitions, we will engage in a dialogue with practitioners, scholars, survivors and those still struggling. The ultimate purpose is to formulate a manifesto for architecture as an infrastructure of care: a reference for the future generations of architects, educational curricula, stakeholders and institutions.
