* For the first time, this book illustrates the most important Maggie's Centres in UK with precise itineraries, showing the importance of their role and their architecture* The book's jacket opens out into a map marking the location of each centerThis guide traces the history of Maggie's cancer treatment centers and takes visitors to see how they have grown up in Britain and elsewhere to become a new type of institution; a paradigm for architecture. Founded by Maggie Keswick Jencks and Charles Jencks, both landscape designers and architects, each Maggie's Centre is a successful example of "a hybrid of four buildings: it's a non-hospital institute, it's a kind of non-home house, a non-confessional religious refuge and a non-museum art gallery. However, it presents traces of all four typologies, used in a new way" (C.J., 2018). In addition to the peculiarity of being a hybrid building, the success of the Maggie's Centre project seems to be crucial to the fact that, in order to carry out their work, the architects are provided, from the outset, with the Architectural Brief, where they find described not so much the technical and functional requirements, but rather the emotional and sensory states that the new building, intended for cancer patients and their relatives and friends, will have to guarantee. The buildings are and should all be of great visual impact due to their sophisticated architectural design, but at the same time be familiar with their domestic and welcoming spaces and should be able to encourage patients to support each other.

Architecture and Health recognizes the built environment and health as inextricable encouraging a new mind-set for the profession. Over 40 international award-winning projects are included to explore innovative design principles linked to health outcomes. The book is organized into three interdependent health domains—individual, community, and global—in which each case study proposes context-specific architectural responses. Case studies include children’s hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, elderly housing, mental health facilities, cancer support centers, clinics, healthy communities, healthcare campuses, wellness centers, healing gardens, commercial offices, infrastructure for developing countries, sustainable design, and more. Representing the United States, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Australia, each author brings a new perspective to health and its related architectural response. This book brings a timely focus to a subject matter commonly constricted by normative building practices and transforms the dialogue into one of creativity and innovation. With over 200 color images, this book is an essential read for architects, designers, and students to explore and analyze designed environments that promote health and well-being.

By exploring the design process this book looks at the relationship between the architectural and medical professions to see how the next wave of Government health policies can be best provided for. The aim is to raise the quality of health buildings in the primary care sector. Greater flexibility will be required as the medical profession moves towards a pro-active attitude to Healthy Living Centres rather than the traditional reactive treatment to cure disease. This is a hands-on 'how to do it' guide to satisfy changing policy objectives, offering an up to date methodology to encourage a holistic approach to health care buildings which will be of interest to both architectural and medical professionals.

The Architecture of Hope focuses on an exciting building project that has been underway since the mid-1990s - new cancer caring centres that offer a fresh approach to both architecture and health. Named after Maggie Keswick and co-founded with her husband, the writer and landscape designer Charles Jencks, these centres aim to be situated at all the major British hospitals that treat cancer. Already sixteen have been completed, with at least seven more the pipeline. Starting in Scotland, where the first were built, they have implications well beyond their modest size and origins. Complementary to NHS hospitals, they present a face that is welcoming, risk-taking, aesthetic and life-affirming; and with their commitment to the other arts, including landscape, they bring in the full panoply of constructive means. Maggie's Centres are a new mixed building type for healing that have different roots in the past. As Jencks and Heathcote show, this hybrid quality is a response to the condition of cancer; its myriad causes and bewildering number of possible therapies. The 'architecture of hope' is this new emergent hybrid genre, consisting of various metaphors that correspond in kind to the many different types of cancer and their various treatments. The Centres have been designed by celebrity architects, including Richard Murphy, Page and Park, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Richard Rogers, Richard MacCormac, the late Kisho Kurokawa, Piers Gough, Wilkinson Eyre and Rem Koolhaas. Additional Centres are being planned by Norman Foster & Partners, Thomas Heatherwick and Steven Holl. The Centres are committed first to helping cancer sufferers help themselves, to inspiring carers to care more, and secondly to architecture. It is the arts and building, important allies in the perennial struggle with cancer, that lead to the 'architecture of hope'. As people walk into a centre after a diagnosis, or enervating treatment, often disoriented and lacking in self-confidence, they enter another world which acknowledges their importance and a basic condition that may become prevalent: living with cancer and not losing hope. This is a new edition of The Architecture of Hope, first published in 2010, but now completely updated and redesigned with new material throughout, and additional essays about the role of art at Maggie's and about the gardens and landscaping. There is also a new section showcasing the way architecture students have responded to the Maggie's brief.

Inspired by a passionate belief in the healing and uplifting powers of architecture, Maggies Cancer Caring Centres are quietly extraordinary spaces in the landscape of modern medicine. It was while suffering from advanced cancer that Maggie Keswick Jencks conceived the idea of a beautifully designed space offering free practical, emotional and social support to those affected by cancer, and, following her death in 1995, the first Maggies Centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996. There are now 17 centres across the UK, designed by leading architects including Frank Gehry, Zahah Hadid and Richard Rogers. In September 2011 Timothy Hyman was asked to be artist in residence at the London Maggies Centre at the Charing Cross Hospital, and this book records his reflections on the people he met and the drawings and paintings he made there. Having himself been touched by cancer through the death of his twin brother twelve years earlier, Hyman sensitively captures the experiences of the centres users and the rhythms of life in this small haven away from the world. While not always an easy journey, The Maggies Year is an intimate meditation on the determination to not lose the joy of living in the fear of dying.

Bringing together conceptual and empirical research from leading thinkers, this book critically examines ‘comfort’ in everyday life in an era of continually occurring social, political and environmental changes. Comfort and discomfort have assumed a central position in a range of works examining the relations between place and emotion, the senses, affect and materiality. This book argues that the emergence of this theme reflects how questions of comfort intersect humanistic, cultural-political and materialist registers of understanding the world. It highlights how geographies of comfort becomes a timely concern for Human Geography after its cultural, emotional and affective aspects. More specifically, comfort has become a vital theme for work on mobilities, home, environment and environmentalism, sociability in public space and the body. ‘Comfort’ is recognized as more than just a sensory experience through which we understand the world; its presence, absence and pursuit actively make and un-make the world. In light of this recognition, this book engages deeply with ‘comfort’ as both an analytic approach and an object of analysis. This book offers international and interdisciplinary perspectives that deploys the lens of comfort to make sense of the textures of everyday life in a variety of geographical contexts. It will appeal to those working in human geography, anthropology, feminist theory, cultural studies and sociology.

Interior architecture is the main factor in creating pleasant environments for in-patient healthcare. Whether in paediatric or geriatric wards, economic efficiency, patient well-being and staff satisfaction are increasingly the focus of treatment, healing and healthcare concepts around the world. Well-designed interior architecture concepts for patient rooms can benefit the patient’s process of recovery and, through its atmosphere and functionality, improve the quality of the hospital experience. This book explores the design of the patient room as a core part of healthcare environments. It describes the different design components, such as material, colour, light and surface finish, and addresses the needs of hygiene and the specific challenges presented by demographic change and digitisation, as well as workflow issues and economic efficiency. Fourteen international case studies illustrate these design principles.

This book sets out to explore the creation of interior atmosphere as seen through the lens of mise-en-scène. You will learn how this film theory informs the concept of 'staged space' translated through the narrative and expressive qualities of a particular scene. Jean Whitehead quickly takes this concept beyond the screen and considers its application to the interior 'setting'. By learning to use the ingredients that inform an 'interior' mise-en-scène such as its backdrop, choice of props, use of special effects alongside the application of colour, pattern, graphics, light and shadow, an immersive atmospheric experience can be created. Packed with inspiring examples and case studies, ranging from cinematic interiors and art installations, to the work of notable interior designers, stylists and architects with an interior interest, this book broadens current thinking around the design of the decorated interior. It will help you to embrace the concepts that underpin an interior mise-en- scène through the use of softer decorative techniques and concerns.

‘Inclusive Designing’ presents the proceedings of the seventh Cambridge Workshop on Universal Access and Assistive Technology (CWUAAT '14). It represents a unique multi-disciplinary workshop for the Inclusive Design Research community where designers, computer scientists, engineers, architects, ergonomists, policymakers and user communities can exchange ideas. The research presented at CWUAAT '14 develops methods, technologies, tools and guidance that support product designers and architects to design for the widest possible population for a given range of capabilities, within a contemporary social and economic context. In the context of developing demographic changes leading to greater numbers of older people and people with disabilities, the general field of Inclusive Design Research strives to relate the capabilities of the population to the design of products. Inclusive populations of older people contain a greater variation in sensory, cognitive and physical user capabilities. These variations may be co-occurring and rapidly changing leading to a demanding design environment. Recent research developments have addressed these issues in the context of: governance and policy; daily living activities; the workplace; the built environment, Interactive Digital TV and Mobile communications. Increasingly, a need has been identified for a multidisciplinary approach that reconciles the diverse and sometimes conflicting demands of Design for Ageing and Impairment, Usability and Accessibility and Universal Access. CWUAAT provides a platform for such a need. This book is intended for researchers, postgraduates, design practitioners, clinical practitioners, and design teachers.
