^ A Church bell, that's the McMaster Divinity College. Orginally McMaster was a baptist college.

Certainly they have a similar mix of brutalist concrete and Gothic inspired stone buildings. I think Western's campus is nicer overall. If University Hall is to McMaster as University College is to UWO, then Mac has no equivalent of Western's magnificent Middlesex College.

Looks like a fantastic campus. Lots of great buildings.

Except this one, which might be the ugliest building on earth.

I'm guessing it's some sort of lab, due to the giant infrastructure stuff all over. But, funny thing, some labs manage to look good.

If they'd built the fortress stuff at the bottom and stopped, or maybe added another standard fortress level to handle the functional systems, it at least wouldn't call attention to itself, or even looked ok, in a "poor guys thought they were designing a castle" kind of way. But they added ungainly appedages, and covered them with crappy exteriors.

It's McMaster Health Sciences Centre, a children's hospital no less! As if it's not bad enough to be sick as a child, they take you into a scary looking building like that. It looks industrial, but the design is world renowned.


from http://www.aia.org/nwsltr_print.cfm?...0051019_change
Quote:
The McMaster Health Sciences Centre (MHSC) in Hamilton, Ontario, designed in 1972 by Craig, Zeidler, & Strong Architects, commemorates an important moment in hospital design. To keep a step ahead of the rapid changes taking place in medicine, Zeidler created an infinitely flexible space, deliberately designed never to be finished. This utopian vision, a concept of ever-changing architectural form, is demonstrated clearly in MHSC’s design, function, and image as a prototype of the “plug-in machine” modern hospital. While critics rejected the high-tech mechanical image of the hospital, others understood Zeidler’s intentions and appreciated his achievement. Even today, 30 years after the building was completed, its presence is powerful...MHSC, which was designed never to be finished, did not change in accordance with the original vision. The building did not follow its intended master plan, the expansion possibilities were not fulfilled, and the interior redevelopment was limited in scope. In this way, the vision that had intended to create an infinitely flexible and dynamic structure resulted in a static monument. Still, the importance of this project cannot be underestimated. MHSC is now an icon in the history of the modern high-tech hospital. Its bold design, which continues to raise many tough questions, denies any compromise in the expression of its utopian concept. It has stimulated the transition toward the postmodern hospital.
It was supposed to have two floors added on top, the elevator shafts go into those "appendages" sticking up over the roof. Instead, McMaster opted to expand the hospital with additional buildings at the back. Maybe a wise decision, the building is already so massive it is very easy to get lost inside.

Here's an aerial photo of McMaster I took last winter. You can see how massive the hospital is:
