Oslo architects design cancer centre for Scots

The latest Maggie’s Centre for cancer care has been completed by Norwegian architects Snøhetta at the Foresterhill site of the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in Scotland.

Oslo-based studio Snøhetta designed the centre in collaboration with Scottish firm Halliday Fraser Munro as a curved pebble-shaped building and it features a single-storey reinforced concrete exterior and a timber interior.

Steel reinforcements were used to form the building’s outer shell, along with thick insulation moulded by hand to fit the shape of the building.
