The grand buildings that make up this complex are in utter contrast to contemporary hospitals, vast mazes of passages that are cut off from any sense orientation. What went wrong? Here is a complex of beautiful buildings that offer many public and private places for rest and contemplation. There is also a sense that each building has its own purpose, and yet together there is a wholeness that makes this hospital seem very special. Doubtless its layout creates many problems, but many of the positive qualities at this hospital seem missing in our more modern versions.
