Architecture+Design Film Festival: Building Hope: The Maggie’s Centres

Sat, April 21 / 3 pm
Directed by Sarah Howitt
2016, UK, 59 minutes

After she was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Maggie Keswick Jencks, the wife of the celebrated architecture historian Charles Jencks, launched an initiative to build a series  of remarkable hospices for cancer patients. Twenty years after her death in 1996, some twenty Maggies’s Centres have been built by leading architects. A fascinating film about  the search for consoling beauty as death approaches.

The Architecture+Design Film Festival (adff.ca) is co-presented by the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation and Cinematheque and is sponsored by Canada Council, Manitoba Association of Architects, University of Manitoba and Urban Idea.

Sponsored by Ken King.

Reviews

Maggie's Centres are the legacy of Margaret Keswick Jencks, a terminally ill woman who had the notion that cancer treatment environments and their results could be drastically improved through good design. Her vision was realized and continues to be realized today by numerous architects, including Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, and Snøhetta.
