Children's Museum of Pittsburgh

Honor Award
Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, Pentagram

Since 1991, the museum has been housed in the landmark Old Post Office building in Pittsburgh's Allegheny Square section. In 2000, the museum commissioned an expansion that would link the Post Office with the neighboring, vacant Buhl Planetarium. The new expansion has bridged the two buildings with a three-story structure that provides a new entrance and additional exhibit space.

Mini Store

Honor Award
Mini Store, Apple Computer

Apple Computer unveiled its revolutionary mini store in five locations across the U.S. Each store is 750 square feet, about half the size of the smallest Apple Store footprint. The design consists of stainless steel walls, backlit graphics, seamless overhead lighting, and a white poured, high-gloss floor. The unique combination of materials and innovative execution of the photography and signage, in addition to the small size of the store, makes this retail design unlike any other in the marketplace.

Shake Shack

Honor Award
Shake Shack, Madison Square Park Conservancy, Pentagram

The signage and graphics for this kiosk display a visual sophistication and sense of humor appropriate to the area, which might unofficially be called the city's design district given its concentration of studios and firms. The graphics combine the aesthetics of the area's deco heyday, the surrounding historic architecture, and the directness of fast food stands. The signage typography is designed to look playfully heroic in terms of scale, with Coney Island-sized letters across the roof - but in elegant, modern, stainless steel.
