Maggie’s Centre, a cancer care centre in London, has won the RIBA Stirling Prize for the best building designed by a British architect.
Designed by architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Maggie’s Centre achieved its accolades by creating an informal homey sanctuary for people to learn to cope with cancer.
Not only does Maggie’s Centre incorporate striking roof canopies, internal gardens, courtyards and rooftop terraces, it also fits into the city in an appropriate way, providing an antithesis to the typical hospital experience.
