Situated in the run-down Sunnyside area of Pretoria, this centre caters for chronically sick patients, attempting to improve quality of life through proximity to friends and family and growing and caring for plants.

Designed as a collage of the city in miniature, the centre showcases a variety of construction technologies with each related to the function of the building block it encases. By lifting the central form off the ground, a large public space is created for people to gather and reflect.
