An exhibition proposed for the Building Centre, probably in the New Year, should give Londoners a downmarket version of the Hotel Puerta America experience. Whereas Madrid’s architectural zoo offers the opportunity to stay in rooms designed by the world’s most famous architects, the Building Centre will have room sets designed for different therapeutic experiences in hospital. Backed by the likes of Nightingale Associates and Philips Lighting, this should make for a fun exhibition but with a serious message – collaborative work with the NHS is looking at giving patients a prescription that covers not only their drugs but also the type of environment that will help them to recover fastest – right down to the colour of the walls and the type of lighting.
