Beautiful Places that Contribute to Healing

It was a great pleasure to welcome architect Benedetta Tagliabue of EMBT to the LA(H)B. She presented Kálida Sant Pau Centre, which is under construction on a site between the Moderniste (Catalan Art Nouveau) Hospital of Sant Pau and the new hospital, a project that forms part of the Maggie’s Centre’s global network. It was an opportunity to reflect upon what happens when architecture and landscape come together to create a beautiful space that can help dissipate the pain and fear that confront cancer patients and their families.
