Children's hospital gets top award9th October 2008
A children's hospital which opened in June 2007 has been named Britain's best public building.
The Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital in Brighton was chosen from a shortlist of 21 to win the Prime Minister's Better Public Building Award. The 100-bed hospital, which is one of only seven dedicated to paediatric care in the UK, won praise for its nautical theme with white concrete panels and bright bands of colour. It is built in the shape of an ark and has a light-filled central atrium at the heart of the nine-storey building.
