■ ■ ■ Health-care design www.raic.org/2007 hospital became a cardiac centre of excellence for southern Vancouver Island, which changed the emergency-room focus from trauma to cardiac resuscitation – and required significant program changes, such as monitored beds and direct access to angiography, » says Gardner. « The chairman of the hospital board later told me what D&T stands for : determination and tenacity. » Gardner spent 12 years on the hospital’s design, re-design and construction. It has taken less time with a project that has received widespread praise, a result, Gardner says, of co-operation between the Calgary Health Region and Alberta Infrastructure, a provincial government agency. The $253-million, 74,000-square-metre Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary is « an architectural and medical marvel : a state-ofthe-art health-care facility with a homey feeling, » gushed The Globe and Mail’s public health reporter, André Picard, over the summer. « It is the most beautiful place you could ever hope to never have the misfortune to visit. » Situated on a 35-acre site on the westerly At Dryvit Systems we’ve been helping new and old buildings alike become a little more green for over 30 years.

The Globe’s Picard pointed out that the « centrepiece » of the new hospital is its main lobby – an open two-storey theatre-in-the round. It features a bronze sculpture, in the shape of a half-globe, through which water flows andupon which a stage can be placed.
