This publication for Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation publishing imprint Columbia Books on Architecture and the City was edited by faculty member and MOS founder Hilary Sample. This edition brings together research on the correlations between urban organization and health patterns, specifically in the city of Johannesburg. In addition to research on the history of mapping health infrastructure, the book also contains a portfolio of images by photographer Guy Tilim, proceedings from a day long symposium on health and urbanism, as well as propositions for extending the efficacy of the healthcare system through built infrastructure.
