MR A&U will build the Netherlands very first Maggie’s Centre
Since 1996 Maggie’s Centers have been traditionally built in the United Kingdom, but now Marlies Rohmer Architects & Urbanists and Piet Oudolf have both been selected to build the Netherlands’ very first Maggie’s Center in Groningen. The Maggie’s Centre functions as a place where cancer patients receive support, information and practical advice. Maggie was the wife of architecture critic and landscape architect Charles Jencks, who remains deeply involved with the Centers. Previous Centers have been built by firms such as OMA, Zaha Hadid and Frank Gehry.
