BC Children's Hospital Foundation: Operating Room

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. A hallway was built that used forced perspective, an eight-foot ceilings at the far end and a five-foot ceilings in the foreground, to make it appear as though the people were getting bigger as they came towards the camera.

Nice and simple solution. It could have been a stronger execution if the room was made even tighter/smaller.
