All of the 23 wards in the new T3 hospital will get their own signature animals. There are approximately 150 different illustrations in total. Mikko Sinervo, the architect responsible for the hospital’s visual appearance together with Riitta Pikkuhookana, has drawn the collection of animals. He began to design the animals a few years ago. ’Most of the animal drawings needed several attempts to work as illustrations – just like drawing a person, the character of the animal only comes up when the artist truly knows their model’, Sinervo explains.
