Heatherwick Studio has completed the new Maggie’s Centre in Leeds

Maggie’s is a foundation that has been providing support for cancer patients across the UK since 1996. 2020 saw the inauguration of the organisation’s twenty-sixth centre in Leeds: the work of Heatherwick Studio, a world-famous architecture firm. In their project for the new Maggie’s centre, Heatherwick followed the design theme of biophilia: the basic idea is that “healthy” and natural materials can have an effect on the ability of the centre’s residents to heal and recover. This is partly the reason why the building has been entirely covered with flowers and plants, as part of a project by renowned landscaping firm Balston Agius.
