This illustrated talk explores architectural innovation in three Canadian hospitals, in three cities, from three decades. Engaging visual evidence, Adams will demonstrate dynamic links among McMaster University Medical Centre in Hamilton (1972), Walter C. Mackenzie Health Sciences Centre in Edmonton (1986), and SickKids Hospital in Toronto (1993), as well as connections to iconic buildings beyond health care, including shopping malls, science labs, and even factories. Architect Eberhard Zeidler’s design concepts transformed hospital architecture, reshaping health care buildings around the world. The special relationship of Zeidler and medical educator John Evans illustrates the distinct role of co-production in the case of McMaster.

Parking chits will be provided for those parking in the Health Sciences Centre underground.
