The most mental mental health clinic ever.

Japanese designers Nendo have completed the interior of a mental health clinic in Akasaka, Tokyo, where none of the doors open and patients and staff instead move around the building by opening sections of the walls. ... Yes... you are looking at images from a mental health clinic.

Rather than getting patients back to a ‘zero’, a neutral starting place, the traditional model for mental health care, the clinic aims to provide patients with something extra: a further richness in their daily lives that they did not have before starting treatment. The interior design is an attempt to express this philosophy in space

I don't know how many times I've thought, "Gosh, I'd really like to house loads of people with mental problems in one giant optical illusion, filled with loads of mini optical illusions." But it's good my prayers have finally been answered.

I wanna know how many of the patients get out and start walking into walls in their normal everyday life.
