Frank Gehry said of Maggie’s Dundee -
“There’s is a Yiddish expression ‘ Heymish’. It means homelike, comfortable. This is what we are trying to do here.”
The Centre sits in front of Ninewells Hospital looking across the Tay to the Fife hills, the only Gehry building in the UK. Maggie’s Centre has his signature curving walls and undulating stainless steel roof.
Maggie's provides emotional, practical and social support to people with cancer and their families and friend.
The centre will be open for viewing between 1pm and 4pm on Saturday 14th September.
