An Expansive Display
The Morris Hyman Critical Care Pavilion’s patient-focused design promotes comfort and family-centered care. Early architectural renderings of the entry corridor envisioned an IMAX-like exposition of panoramic scenes that would engage the visitor with images of a caring medical presence, regional community and its place in the world.
As the project evolved, PDG was called upon to develop a Master Plan, the evolution of which provided a guide to create this experience that instead used a multi-media approach to achieve the original grand scale objective, but in a way that allows for use of common aspect ratio video, hospital management of content, and subtle changes of colors and textures when updating analog content.
The corridor-length display works as an inclusive and welcoming statement of care, while holding up donors, employees and caregivers as essential to Washington Hospital achieving its mission.
