Maggie's Glasgow Gartnavel is OMA's first completed work in the UK since the Serpentine Pavilion in 2006 and is located in the grounds of the Gartnavel Hospital in Glasgow. The centre is a single-level building in the form of interlocking rooms surrounding an internal, landscaped courtyard. The centre opened in October 2011 and has earned OMA a nomination for a 2012 Design Award, "the Oscars of the design world," in the Architecture category.
This fabulous model has been donated to Maggie's by OMA to help them raise funds for their unique programme of cancer support. Maggie's is an organisation that creates places providing the emotional, practical and social support that people with cancer need. The centres combine striking buildings, calming spaces, professional experts offering professional support, and the opportunity to talk and share experiences with a community of people who have been through similar experiences. Designed by industry-leading architects, Maggie's Centres are warm, friendly and informal places full of light and open space with a big kitchen at their heart. They provide a peaceful space to absorb the information you're inevitably bombarded with and help to relieve the stress of having cancer. www.maggiescentres.org
