S1 E3: Christopher Wilkinson OBE; Architect & Artist

Live Longer: The Podcast

03-03-2021 • 39 mins

Join me in conversation with Christopher Wilkinson, OBE, an eminent and award winning architect and artist who has designed many notable buildings, but Maggie’s Centre, Oxford, for cancer sufferers is his most proud achievement. He challenges us to think how the spaces we live in can impact our health and wellbeing. He tells us how buildings of the future need to be responsive and finally shares with us his vision for the spaces we occupy to be safe, yet interesting. Light is a key feature in his work and he believes art and science are linked and this linkage is a key to the longevity of our planet.

“Light is terribly important to humans. Without light we would die.” Christopher Wilkinson, OBE
