Inside the Mittal Children’s Medical Centre you may spot a jumping rabbit in the grass or a deer darting between the trees in our newly extended Nature Trail, an interactive artwork that now spans the full length of the corridor to theatre.
The journey to the operating theatre can be a difficult and anxious time and our Nature Trail aims to improve this experience for our patients and families. Designed by Jason Bruges Studio and commissioned by GOSH Arts in 2012 for the Morgan Stanley Clinical Building GOSH Arts have extended the Nature Trail into the newly opened Premier Inn Clinical Building to provide continuity and familiarity throughout the Centre for families on their journey to surgery.
In the Nature Trail’s woodland, creatures such as hedgehogs, frogs and birds appear between the trees creating an enchanting and calming distraction for patients on their way to theatre. The animals are created by over 100 LED panels hidden beneath the bespoke woodland wallpaper, motion sensors detect individuals as they move along the corridor triggering the animals to accompany them along their journey.
