OUR HAPPY LIFE – Architecture and Well-Being

We are happy to look back on five month exhibition of the crucial topic “Our Happy Life: Architecture and Well-Being in the Age of Emotional Capitalism” with our project a Munich office for the Marsh & McLennan Companies and Mercer.

All over the world, the role of materials, design and location in improving well-being is being explored again. Up until 13 October 2019, the Centre Canadien d'Architecture / Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal has been hosting the exhibition. It includes architectural work by the Munich-based company CSMM, which has been advising Marsh & McLennan Companies on office design since 2016. As a corporate consultancy on quality of life in cities, subsidiary Mercer is also participating in the exhibition.

Curator Francesco Garutti has been giving an interview during the exhibition asking whether the producers of rankings can be considered to be the designers of the cities today:

Curator Francesco Garutti on Our Happy Life.  How do we measure the quality of our lives? What is the data behind happiness? Over the last decade, lists of indicators, indices, and rankings, commissioned and produced by public and private entities alike, have changed how we perceive and design the spaces we inhabit.
