I’m a few days late in recognizing this campaign, but I want to do so now because I’m very much admiring of both the concept and its execution.
Agency writeup and credits below.

The BC Children’s Hospital simply did not have enough space to perform the level of care required on an ongoing basis. A growing population, bigger operating teams, larger equipment and longer hospital stays are just some of the reasons why a new and larger site is required. To illustrate the issue, the Dare campaign uses optical illusions to visually bring the space shortage to life for potential donors. A hallway was built that used forced perspective, an eight-foot ceilings at the far end and a five-foot ceilings in the foreground, to make it appear as though the people were getting bigger as they came towards the camera.
