The colorful exterior of this building reminds me of creations made of Legos, which seems appropriate since it houses a children’s hospital. Perhaps the architect channeled his or her inner child to come up with the design. (University of Minnesota Fairview – Masonic Children’s Hospital; 7/29/23)

I featured this building, a children's hospital, for the architecture challenge because we have spent a lot of time there recently. My 6th grandchild is now 4 months old and has lived her whole life so far in this hospital. She was born with a severe heart defect, hypoplastic left heart syndrome, and never has gotten healthy enough to receive the operations needed to fix her own heart. She has been on the heart transplant list since she was 6 weeks old, and is still waiting. One third of babies who need new hearts die before they receive them. We are enjoying each day we are blessed to have her with us. (8/16/23)

How clever and creative of this architect! I love your photo and all the Lego blocks you added to the page. It certainly is a cheerful and happy place for your darling granddaughter to spend her days in.
