BC Children's Hospital Foundation: Hospital Ward

The BC Children’s Hospital simply did not have enough space to perform the level of care required on an ongoing basis. A growing population, bigger operating teams, larger equipment and longer hospital stays are just some of the reasons why a new and larger site is required. To illustrate the issue, the Dare campaign uses optical illusions to visually bring the space shortage to life for potential donors. To achieve the optical illusion, an Ames Room was created with all the walls and furniture built with skewed angles.
