Health is a focus of contemporary political debate in a moment of historically high anxiety, but are architects, urban designers, and landscape architects seeking a new moral and political agenda within these concerns? Imperfect Health examines the complexity of today’s interrelated and emerging health problems juxtaposed with a variety of proposed architectural and urban solutions.

Imperfect Health was voted the Exhibition of the Year in 2012 by Design Observer.

Curators: Giovanna Borasi and Mirko Zardini, CCA.
Exhibition design: OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen, Brussels.
