Floor Mosaics Installed in the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford Expansion

Floor mosaics will be featured in the lobby and first floor of the new Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford building. U.K. based artist, Gary Drostle and four assistants were on site in March to install his work. The designs relate to the California ecosystem and the way-finding used throughout the building. The lobby reflects the rocky shore and the first floor depicts the redwood forest.

The lobby will include ten mosaic inlays including a seal chasing fish, a shoal of mackerel, several tide pools, a leather back turtle and jellyfish, a California sea lion cub, and an elephant seal. The first floor will have nine mosaic inlays each depicting a scene from a forest trail including salamanders, snakes, butterflies and plants. The first floor also includes 660 glass leaves that connect the nine mosaic scenes.
