CWC’s Wood Design Awards book
The Wood Design Awards book is an annual publication and is a compilation of some of the winning projects submitted to the Wood Design Awards program. The Wood Design Awards program is the only North American program that aims to foster growth in the quality of architectural practices by recognizing achievements in wood architecture.
“This year’s submissions to the Wood design awards helped bridge a gap between the contemporary applications of wood in construction and the modern implementation of new techniques and technologies. In order to celebrate the evolution of wood product applications, the 2013.14 awards book feature recipients from Wood Design & Building awards program, Canadian Wood WORKS! and US WoodWorks Wood Design Awards.”

MAGGIE’S CENTRES: A BLUEPRINT FOR CANCER CARE
June 8 – July 5
Maggie’s Centres (founded by Maggie Keswick Jencks and located throughout the United Kingdom) apply design thinking to the challenges of patients undergoing cancer treatment. The centres, located within or adjacent to existing hospitals, are unique, commissioned buildings and gardens designed by leading architects and landscape architects from around the world.
Maggies Centres embody a new model of personal cancer care – integrating essential human needs for social gatherings, private contemplation, and access to a garden into the daily lives of patients.
This exhibition explores the intersection of design and healthcare by focusing on five of the 17+ Maggie’s Centres. Photographs, drawings, and descriptions of these bright and unorthodox projects designed by Frank Gehry, Piers Gough, Steven Holl, Rem Koolhaas, and Richard Rogers bring the Maggie’s Centres concept to life.
This exhibition is organized by the New York School of Interior Design.
Mon - Fri 6:30 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.
