Leading architect Frank Gehry starts work this week on interiors for his first UK building, cancer support charity Maggie’s Centre at Ninewells NHS hospital in Dundee, Scotland. The building has ‘signature Gehry features’ says a Maggie’s Centre spokeswoman. None of its walls are straight and it is topped by a concertinaed roof of stainless steel and timber, of which no two pieces are the same. Gehry has been working on the project since 1997. The building is scheduled to be completed in late August with an official opening on 25 September.
