A major, permanent light installation that transforms a 100-metre-long windowless corridor in Hôpital Roger Salengro in Lille, France, part of CHRU, Northern Europe’s largest hospital. Le Jardin hospitalier brings light and a sense of place into the clinical environment suggesting a correlation between caring for plants and people, as well as referencing the technologies and architecture that supports each. The work was inspired by Lille’s important history of botanical medicine.
