Public Signage

How can signage transform urban stairways to activate neighborhood pedestrian networks and public spaces?

Signage Design Strategy  

    Pilot Project ︎︎︎

    • Information: Development of a signage standard that will provide a consistent information layer, while allowing for artistic contents. 
    • Sociability: Encourages equitable sociability in public spaces and will lead to increased physical and emotional well-being in a communicative, visible and safer environment.

    City-Wide Extension ︎︎︎

    • Integration: Connecting potential local design distinctiveness for each neighborhood.   
    • Systemization: The stairways with signs will become both destinations and nodes of a city-wide network of ‘pedestrian-transportation-system-as-art-experience’ with efficient connections between walking routes and neighborhoods.
