Buildings shape our lives and our health. They affect how we sleep, work, socialise and even breathe. They can isolate us, make us sick or put us in danger, but they can also heal. We, in turn, make our buildings an extension of ourselves: our hopes, fears and vanities. The structures we choose to inhabit absorb our histories and leave traces for future generations to read. In 'Living With Buildings' Iain Sinclair embarks on a series of journeys - through London, Marseilles, the Outer Hebrides and Sweden - to explore the conflicted relationship between sickness and structure.
