The Architecture Of Hope

Eli Singer just sent me this link to a video documenting the Sick Kids Radiothon taking place this week—in case you haven't heard. Sick Kids is a Toronto institution that represents the best of who we are as Torontonians, and as Canadians. The building they are in was designed by local architecture legend Eb Zeidler (also the designer of Ontario Place and the Eaton Centre).

The building was among the first medical centres to embrace the idea that places and environments greatly influence the speed of patient recovery. Kids especially need to feel safe when they are away from their homes and even, at times, their families. This hospital comes as close as any to being welcoming no matter what your age, race, or financial status. Take a moment to watch the video. Be prepared though to open your wallet at the end to contribute to a cause without equal.
