issue 26/ health/ spring 2018

Modernism has always put health as one of its prime directives. The insanitary chaos of the 19th century would give way to the airy rationalism of the 20th century. Fresh air and light were the aim, concreteand glass were the cure. Every aspect ofour lives could be improved by modernismit would seem – not just physical health,but our mental health as well.
Healthy body. Healthy mind.
We must never forget that our beautifulNHS was born out of a country keen to modernise. Our postwar socialhousing programme was as much aboutimproving the health of its inhabitants asit was about housing them. This agendahad many victories along the way, but alsosome failures. Thereare a few bitter pillsto swallow in this issue but as long as you
have this issue of The Modernist on yourbedside table you’ll be able toclaim that ‘at least I still have my health’.
