Maggie’s South West Wales
Kisho Kurokawa gifted the concept sketch for this Maggie’s Centre before his death in 2007. The ensuing design presented a challenge to the architects tasked with delivering the sketch in that the complex geometries had not been defined. The outcome is a special and glorious little building in many ways.
