When designing a building architect's devote enormous time and energy to understanding the future building's function and then try to create an environment where that function fits the surroundings. Saskatchewan's crop of public health buildings reflect the flat single level nature of the province's landscape but use that space to connect the various elements of the health care system into a working building. Offices, hospital wards, diagnostic facilities, laboratories, treatment rooms, surgery, intensive care units, food services all combine to form a working unit to provide efficient care and esthetically pleasing surroundings. In this QuickTime VR image we move North or South along the building's East side, the bright late afternoon sun throws the building into shadows but demonstrates its extensive nature.

This second image is a QuickTime VR panorama of the entrance area of the senior citizens care portion of this facility.

In time we will be able to provide you with images like these that take much less time to download but at the present complex panoramas and objects like these are huge and we apologise for the length of time it requires for them to reach you from the Internet server.

We would really like to hear from you. I would like to know if you want to see QuickTime images like these and I also would like to know your thoughts about the nature of the content here. Contact me by e-mail and indicate if you would rather not have your comments published in letters or not.
