The Queen's Medical Center
In 1988 and 2000, we were commissioned by The Queen's Medical Center (QMC) to design permanent historical timelines for their long corridor hallways in the main hospital and at The Queen Emma Clinics. Most of the historical images were reproduced from the hospital’s immense photo archive. Special theft-resistant frames were designed to insure that no one would walk away with any hospital "souvenirs." A series of large color panels depicting healing Hawaiian plants were installed in the Queen Emma Clinics corridor.

If you ever wander down the long corridor at The Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu, you'll see a historical timeline of the hospital with sepia-toned photos that we designed and installed back in 1988 (top). In 2000 we were again commissioned by QMC to do the same for the The Queen Emma Clinics hallway, which runs directly below the main hospital corridor (bottom photo). The large graphic panels are images of healing Hawaiian plants.
Since the hallways are not monitored, security was an issue and we were asked to make the exhibits theft-proof. A mounting system was designed to insure the koa-framed photos would not be pried off the walls. After 25 years everything has remained intact and we have a lot of silicone adhesive and screws to thank for that.
