Visitors are invited to take a stroll through a nighttime carnival and test their strengths, skills, and senses while learning about the wonders of the human body. Colorful sideshow banners 'pitch' basic anatomy and body systems. Games of skill and chance provide opportunities to mimic body processes. 'Barkers' reel visitors in with surprising body facts and dare them to step closer and see real human organs.
Alberta Hospital Ponoka Wayfinding Signage Program
This hospital site is a campus-like complex in a parkland setting south of Ponoka. The architectural organization of spaces, the single-story character of treatment buildings, their residential-like finishes, and plans that optimize daylight entry into rooms are important features of the facility design.
Established in 1908, the University of Alberta celebrated its centennial anniversary in September 2008. The original campus master plan was developed in 1910 when the Montreal architectural firm Nobbs and Hyde was hired to design the campus and its buildings. Campus development was interrupted for many years due to World War I, the Great Depression, and World War II, and the original architectural vision was essentially lost during the post-WWII building boom.
