February 7, 2015
by Canadian Architect

Founded by Maggie Keswick Jencks and located throughout the UK, Maggie’s Centres apply design thinking to the challenges of patients undergoing cancer treatment. Over 70 centres have been commissioned from internationally renowned architects in collaboration with contemporary landscape architects as a new model for personal cancer care – where essential human needs such as social gatherings, private contemplation and gardens are introduced into the daily lives of patients.

From March 3 until April 12, 2015 at Idea Exchange | Design at Riverside in Cambridge, Ontario, explore five of these bright and unorthodox facilities designed by Frank Gehry, Piers Gough, Steven Holl, Rem Koolhaas and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. 

This exhibition is organized by the New York School of Interior Design with additional content provided by the Carnegie Museum of Art.

The opening reception kicks off the exhibition at 6:30pm on Tuesday, March 3, 2015.

Idea Exchange | Design at Riverside is located at 7 Melville Street South in Cambridge, Ontario.
