'Maggie' Centre was Gehry's first

The caption 'Gehry to make UK debut with Arup' (NCE 27 March) is not correct.

While the statement that the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion will be the first Frank Gehry structure to be built in England is probably true, the first Gehry building to be built in the UK was back in 2003 – the "Maggie Centre" in Dundee.

The recognition that Gehry gave to this charitable organisation by designing this cancer support and information centre should be properly acknowledged. He was a close friend of Maggie Jencks and this was a project close to his heart.
