I hate going to doctor appointments in large medical buildings. And to hospitals. I almost always get lost. Not on the way there; I navigate city streets just fine. I get lost INSIDE the buildings.
Who designs these spaces?
I understand when old buildings are expanded; long winding hallways, multiple elevator banks….
What I don’t understand is why the newer buildings are also built like mazes.
Today, as I tried to find my doctor’s office, I was thinking it could be a great sci-fi movie: People who don’t feel well, hopelessly lost, wandering around, looking for the right door. The voiceover, “Desperate for relief, they just had to keep searching.”
Maze Malaise, the movie.
