Clatterbridge Cancer Hospital. Concrete, 1960

The design could be illuminated from the surrounding walls by changing coloured lights, which were controlled by the patient. The relief glowed like an ever-changing butterfly wing! It was a genuine attempt to calm the patient - and to give them some element of control in a bizarre situation.
