Last night I was invited to speak and debate about the world of Health and Design at big potatoes event in London. The setting was a basement room in a shoreditch italian restaurant.
The topic of the evening was a debate about design and its role in improving healthcare, particularly in Britain. It was part of the ongoing development of something called The Big Potatoes Manifesto. This seems to be an attempt at creating better awareness and public debate about design’s role in public service. In preparation for the event I was asked to put together some thoughts on healthcare space and how design can or should play a role.
