Massachusetts General Hospital

Honor Award

The new wayfinding system for the complex of 18 public hospital buildings takes advantage of its recent redesign, which created a unified network of ground-floor corridors and lobbies. Instead of using building names, the new system is based on "routes" and "stops," like a subway system. People use ground-floor color-coded "routes" to find their "stop" — usually an elevator that takes them to their final destination. From there, building graphics guide users to departments and offices.
