The architectural placebo is an expansion of Charles Jencks (Maggie’s Centre’s) original philosophy suggesting architectural design may positively influence the rehabilitation process of cancer patients.

The research investigates a previously unexplored link between architecture and psychology to discover the benefits to psychological and physiological well-being through the built form. Backed by scientific evidence the thesis provides a comprehensive guide for architects, specifying how healing methodologies can be integrated into design.
