The Evelina Children's Hospital in Westminster, which opens for business this week, may have put Hopkins in the running for all manner of design prizes but the architect's geographical knowledge is somewhat less impressive. Having named each floor of the hospital after a different environment, such as savannah, forest, and mountain, it named each department after animals common to the region.
Except somebody put the penguin section in the Arctic.
As every schoolchild knows, penguins are only found in the Antarctic. As punishment, Hopkins can now expect a letter from every smart-alec child that ever uses the facility.
