Heini Hakosalo interviewed in a BBC programme on the Paimio Sanatorium

Senior research fellow Heini Hakosalo from the History of Sciences and Ideas -unit was interviewed in a BBC programme "Healthy buildings". The programme was recorded in the relaxation room at the famous Paimio Sanatorium, and Heini Hakosalo, who has studied the history of tuberculosis in Finland,  recounts what life was like living for years in the sanatoria. Other experts participating in the programme include Laura Arpianen, Professor of Health and Wellbeing Architecture at Aalto University in Helsinki. Designed by the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto in the early 1930s, the building served exclusively as a tuberculosis sanatorium until the early 1960s, when it was converted into a general hospital. The sanatorium has been nominated to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
