Editorial Reviews


This is an inspirational book that anyone interested in the most sensitive contemporary design and in the future of healthcare should read.

"What you all have created, in terms of architecture, is a community statement to patients and carers that Your Life Matters. Walking from the hospital into Maggie's is a concretization of hope - just as the daffodil reminds us of spring."

Senior Vice President, The Wellness Community in Santa Monica
