Rogers wins approval for Maggie in London

  • Comment
The Richard Rogers Partnership's Maggie's Centre has this week picked up planning permission.

The capital's first example of the centres will be situated on a site within the grounds of Charing Cross Hospital and will offer a range of services and support for patients affected by cancer.

Rogers claimed that the centre's design is both flexible and adaptable, responding to the ethos of the Maggie's Centre charity, which was set up by architectural critic and landscape architect Charles Jencks.

'Architecture and art play a vital role in Maggie's Centre,' Rogers said. 'I hope to create something that is much more than a support centre, more homely, more welcoming, more comfortable, more thought provoking and more uplifting.'
