Maggie Keswick Jencks, a writer, artist and designer initiated the idea of „Maggie’s Center“: Infirmaries that provide patients with cancer an environment of support and advice in a protected area without replacing the conventional cancer therapy.
These buildings are relatively small, compared to clinical center, but excellent designed to feel welcome, protected and to get a connection to nature and spirituality. Here, death is common. The building and garden architecture supports the spiritual thoughts between life and death.
