Steven Holl-designed Maggie's Centre for London refused planning permission

A three-tiered Maggie's Cancer Caring Centre for the St. Bartholomew's Hospital in London has been rejected by the City of London Planning Committee. When the design was revealed back in June 2012, Holl noted the history of the area and St. Bartholomew The Great Church as inspiration for his design.

Laura Lee, CEO of Maggie’s, has released a statement which reads: "We are obviously disappointed by the decision of the City of London Planning Committee but will now work to address the issues raised and resolve them quickly. Bringing our programme of support to the thousands of people with cancer in the East End of London remains a critical priority and we will work hard to ensure that Maggie’s Barts becomes a reality as soon as possible."
