    IDC Tour:  Artwork at the Lois Hole Hospital for Women Edmonton (1 non-IDCEC hour - General)

    Designed by interior design firm DIALOG, Edmonton's Robbins Pavilion is home to both the Lois Hole Hospital for Women and the CK Hui Heart Centre. At 33,296 square metres, it is the largest addition to the Royal Alexandra Hospital campus in a decade.

    Furnished with over 600 pieces of original art and photography by Western Canadian artists, the pavilion’s interior design combines a modern aesthetic look with soothing tones and warm woods. Humour, beauty and femininity are celebrated in the artwork positioned in waiting areas, corridor ends, patient lounges and patient care areas; from a “Necklace for a Giant” made of Chinese rice bowls, to joyous paintings of cupcakes and paper doll clothes.

    In semi-private areas, the application of colour is increased through the use of paint and large installations of Western Canadian artwork including watercolours, acrylic and oil paintings, drawings, and textiles. In patient and exam rooms, a palette of soothing colours, warm wood millwork and an additional 345 pieces of photography by Alberta photographers offer patients and staff the beauty, softness and joy of natural elements essential to a healing environment.
