A derelict house tunnelled beneath by its former owner was the artist’s dream come true. Could architect David Adjaye help her transform it?
There’s a lot to learn from London, a city with perhaps the most storied music history in the past 150 or so years. During a recent visit, we delved into several multi-sensory, sonically-driven experiences—some as simple as a live orchestral concert and others as creative as a five-story flat transformed into a living diorama of a time machine. It’s this kind of evolving energy that makes London a hub for future-forward dance music venues, too.
Conceived by creative agency Havas, the 13-garment collection launching on World Mental Health Day features oversized care labels replacing washing instructions with self-care messaging and advice for finding support.
While we all know that billionaires control a substantial amount of the world’s wealth – in fact, current projections see the richest 1% controlling 2/3 of it by 2030 – what they use their vast fortunes on may surprise you.

The study has its origin, strangely enough, in tea. Back in 2006, researchers thought tea drinkers might have fewer heart attacks. So Kenneth Mukamal, an epidemiologist at the Harvard-affiliated Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, recruited at-risk adults and told them to drink either three cups of black tea a day or three cups of water. Getting participants to stick to the program is notoriously difficult, so to make sure they were drinking their tea, Mukumal tested urine samples from a subgroup of participants for gallic acid, a tea breakdown product. After six months, they ran the numbers: Tea had virtually no effect on a person’s cardiovascular risk.
Hospital Rooms is an arts and mental health charity that believes in the “enduring power of the arts to instil value, dignity and wellbeing in people.” They work with mental health practitioners, service users and commission museum and gallery quality artists to create “site specific, inventive and compliant environments,” for predominantly secure and locked mental health units. They also run creative workshops for service users within said units.
