Buildings constantly surround us and frame our lives, and architecture is the art behind their construction. It is no wonder that architecture has a major affect on our mood and behaviour. “To be a good architect, you need to have a deep appreciation of human character and its capacity for transformation,” says Adrian Lahoud, dean at the Royal College of Art.
London Pride, this weekend, ends the month-long celebration of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) community. To make this year’s celebration even more exciting, 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act 1967, which partially decriminalised homosexuality. This was Britain’s first step in establishing LGBTQ rights, a step that finally culminated in full legalisation, in 2013.
