Three large murals connect and guide you through an office with perspective and motion. Tall buildings and trees give an optimistic view of looking upwards, while birds soar you through the space as a form of wayfinding. Painted with Benjamin Moore paint. Located on the 7th floor of the Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex.


The main goal was to create a cohesive and immersive environment through biophilic design that reflects the institution's values and aspirations. By strategically placing murals throughout the Teaching and Learning department's office space, a visually stimulating and culturally rich environment enhances the overall experience for employees, students, and visitors. Additionally, the murals play a vital role in shaping its culture, promoting creativity and innovation, and fostering a sense of community and belonging.
