The Architects Association of Iceland (AÍ), The Icelandic Landscape Architects Association (FÍLA) and The Association of Interior Design (FHI) unite this year in a seminar for health and design.
Modern architecture was created in response to certain health problems such as poor hygiene, pollution, poor lighting conditions, dirty water and lack of drainage systems. In the 21st century we are facing new issues related to public health. How will architects respond to this?
