Corridors, for me and many other visitors at least, speak the loudest of any aspect of a hospital be it in use or not. They represent a sort of nervous system, where personnel and equipment shoot up and down in order to keep the process of keeping patients alive and well running. The architects’ acknowledgement of this key highway purpose, and the time spent by personnel within them, can be rather affirmed by the variety of the decor found within them, perhaps in attempts at making these corridors pleasant environments. No two are often the same. Murals of cartoon-esque nature scenes and historical events – painted by local artisans and schoolchildren alike to raise morale of all those passing through it on a daily basis -, colorful doors from both the early 19th and latter 20th centuries, curtains from all schools of interior design, an abundance of large windows, are merely some staple sights.
