Dundee Maggie's Centre




SUST.org, Scotland’s dedicated website for sustainable architectural design, has published an interesting post-occupancy evaluation of the Dundee ‘Maggie’s Centre’. This cancer daycare centre was designed by Frank Gehry and built in 2003 in the grounds of the city’s Ninewells Hospital. The evaluation, which can be downloaded in full, aims to develop a cross-evaluative methodology for wider use in small scale healthcare buildings in order to improve the briefing process.
