A view of the Children's Hospital of Saskatchewan from downtown Saskatoon.

Evaluation of the aesthetic merits of this building is left to the viewer.

To be fair, it is incomplete.

Getting close to finishing, more doctors and support being hired can only be a good thing for the city.

There have been some complaints about the Children's Hospital's lack of colour compared to, say, the one in Calgary.

Coloured glass fins are now beginning to be installed on the exterior. I think they will add a subtle and tasteful splash of colour.

I agree, it's not 'in your face' but seems to compliment the other materials nicely...from this one photo at least

i have been one of those disappointed with the facility failing to reflect that it is designed for children....but the addition of these coloured fins does improve the "feel" of the building to be not so institutional. thank goodness....

I have also thought they could do some pretty cool light projection on the massive silver roof/side that faces south towards downtown. Maybe even some looney tunes...haha

I have a feeling the interiors will reflect a more colourful and vibrant atmosphere. But you have to admit its much much nicer seeing this new building rather than the depressing RUH. I personally wish they would have made plans to demo and rebuild it all as a new Hospital, but that takes money.

Those colours are very "DTN YXE".

Not the greatest photo but I didn't have time to scout a better vantage point.

would be neat to see that type of tower crane( with angled jib ) be used for projects around here. They look much cooler for construction projects. That is a massive mobile boom crane though...rode past there too.
