Anthony Clarke of BLOXAS, an architecture practice for empathic and experimental architecture, was contacted by a South Australian woman with ME to design a home for her. His research led him to a screening of ‘Unrest’ and a friendship with Anna Kerr, who also has ME. Anthony and Anna recently presented at Emerge’s International Symposium about design for health conditions and diseases, including ME.
In the past 5 years or so my architecture practice (BLOXAS) has had the privilege of working on a diverse range of projects, however more excitingly we have been able to work and research a wide range of unique and specific ‘conditions’. These range from Dementia (Sound Field), Chronic Sleep disorders (Garden Pavilion) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (Hungry Hands House) just to name a few. An interesting overlap through all of these projects are the sensitivities to light, sound, smell etc, and how these are affected living in the urban environment.
