From Lens and Pens by Sally we have the 4th Monday Challenger’s Choice (Pick One: Abstraction, Animals, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Objects, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, and Travel). (Animals and Objects are themes.)
HEALTH CENTRAL HOSPITAL
The photos below were all taken facing the west side of the hospital. The next time I’m over that way and have more time, I hope to take more pictures from different sides and angles. It is, to say the least, an interesting piece of architecture.
These pictures were taken on a bright sunny day with my iPhone5. I’m hoping that one of these days iPhone or some phone company will come up with a way that you can actually see the screen in daylight and have a clue of what kind of picture your’re taking with your camera phone. Until then, it’s hit and miss on almost all my outdoor shots!
In a nationwide contest Health Central Hospital was named the 7th Most Beautiful Hospital in America.
You can’t miss this building’s iconic “big red wedge” built as part of a 1993 structure that replaced the original 1952 facility. The current 440,000 square-foot, 171-bed acute care hospital and physicians’ offices include a recently updated 34-bed emergency center. HKS was the architect and interior designer.
