"In use since the 1970s, this important underground corridor has long been well used but could be tricky to navigate. In 2019, members of the Weston Family Foundation approached the University Health Network with an idea to reimagine the tunnels for the people who travel through while giving or receiving care, and enlisted world-renowned designer Stefan Sagmeister shortly thereafter.

Today, each element of the tunnel design is the result of research into wellness and emotional well-being. Brought to life by Linus Lohoff, the multi-patterned walls and brightly coloured floors enable smoother journeys between hospitals and create a feeling of hope and serenity. The music — composed and recorded specifically for this project by pianist Victoria Hong — adds another layer to the unique, inviting atmosphere." (Photo: Simon Tanenbaum)
