Cutting edge technology, under construction

.
No, it's not an eggshell on my head. (Remember the Calimero cartoons?)
.
All the visitors to tour No. 60 of this weekend's annual Jerusalem Houses from Within had to wear a hardhat because we were in a construction zone.

We got to see the new luxurious bathrooms for future patients in the new Hadassah hospital tower (that I showed you here).
And lots more, including green technology! You will be seeing more in the coming posts.


You too would want to wear a hardhat going up in this external elevator cage!
It was exciting.

Can you see how two walls of the building come together in a wedge?
That's Hadassah--always on the cutting edge!

Hi Dina, I like you in the hard hat!

Quite beautiful architecture for the hospital...it will be interesting to see as the work progresses! I'm curious to know the ways they're are able to make it "green."

Cutting edge is for sure! What a cool architectural design! Are you sure that wasn't an EGGSHELL on your head, Dina??

It's fun to see you take a reflection photo with your hard hat. That looks like a magnificent hospital. It's nice to know you have such fantastic facilities.

I remember Calimero, this building is beautiful and impressive.

That's a beautiful architecture for a building, but i'm afraid if for a hospital. Now that tectonic earthquakes seem to be the norm, as fueled by the increasing sun's flares, it can be scary to be confined up there. I am glad our hospitals are not as tall, as sometimes calamities, black-outs or fires in this country oblige patients and tenants to transfer. At least it hasn't happened yet during earthquakes.
