EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a remarkable sketch by the legendary Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The sketch depicts the Renkioi hospital buildings, which were designed as pre-fabricated military hospitals for the Crimean War. Brunel's visionary design aimed to provide efficient medical facilities in Renkioi, Turkey, and this particular sketch was intended for construction by July 1856. The image offers a glimpse into the genius of Brunel, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest engineers of all time. His innovative approach to architecture and engineering revolutionized Victorian society and left an indelible mark on history. Courtesy of the Brunel Institute - a collaboration between the SS Great Britain Trust and the University of Bristol - this print allows us to appreciate both Brunel's artistic talent and his dedication to improving healthcare during times of conflict. It serves as a testament to his enduring legacy. As we delve into this piece, we are transported back in time to witness firsthand how technology intersected with compassion in order to alleviate suffering on distant battlefields. This photograph not only captures an important moment in history but also reminds us of our shared humanity and our ongoing pursuit for progress in times of adversity.
