Equalities of Wellbeing in Philosophy and Architecture

Project film Equal by Design is now freely available to view and share online:

www.equalbydesign.co.uk

Based on Peg Rawes’ and Beth Lord’s research from the Equalities of Wellbeing project, the film is a 25-minute documentary about how the philosophy of Spinoza helps us to think about inequality, housing design, and the UK housing crisis.

It features contributions from architects Peter Barber, Alex Ely, and Sarah Wigglesworth; Shelter’s Deborah Garvie and former director of the Equality Trust, Duncan Exley; geographer Danny Dorling and Guardian writer Oliver Wainwright. The film was directed by Adam Low and produced by Martin Rosenbaum of Lone Star Productions.

Additional filmed interviews on the website provide further context for the film.

We hope you enjoy the film and would love to hear your feedback. After viewing, please fill in a short audience survey.

Media and other enquiries: please contact Beth Lord or Peg Rawes.
