Improving the visitor experience at Thanks-Giving Square
Learn about Thanks-Giving Square and support the development of new active wayfinding elements and EGD led by local designer Noah Jeppson.
Located in Dallas, Texas, Thanks-Giving Square is a beautiful three-acre park, interfaith chapel and museum designed by noted architect Philip Johnson. When it opened to the public in 1977, passive wayfinding played an important role, but years of vandalism, theft, and decay of “architectural graphics” has led to a poor visitor experience at this national shrine.
Jeppson is leading a KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGNto bring active wayfinding to this important landmark. He will present an overview of the project and discuss how he is working from Seattle — while collaborating with the architecture office in New York (Philip Johnson / Alan Ritchie) — to deliver this project in Dallas. Noah invites SEGD to participate in the design process and contribute to the Kickstarter campaign already underway.
