The Maggie's Centres project is an architectural achievement on its own right. An inspiring series of lovingly crafted buildings by a group of reputed architects and designers provide the space for cancer patients and families to meet others living through similar experiences. But the gentleness emanating from the collaboration between CZWG and Paul Smith in Nottingham is something that catches you by surprise. With the kitchen in its heart, the warmth from this building, inspired by Maggie's love of Chinese gardens, spreads to every corner. The success of a building is often claimed by a rather superficial criteria when you think about it, but as another visitor suggested to me, the success of the Nottingham Maggie's became evident the moment we saw the way children interacted with it, as if they were in fact, at a friend's house.
