Museum of the City of New York Rebranding
As part of a major renovation of the Museum of the City of New York, Cooper Joseph Studio was tasked with enlivening the core areas of the building. The goal was to infuse the key public spaces with soul and a feeling of engagement.

3M Australia Headquarters Environmental Graphics and Wayfinding
Down to Business Down Under
THERE's environmental graphics program for 3M Australia celebrates collaboration, chain reaction, and scientific heroes.
Asked to create a compelling environmental graphics program for 3M’s 8,000-square-meter Australian headquarters, THERE (Sydney) focused on the company’s collaborative work ethos and the chain reaction of ideas that create technology innovations.
Macquarie Group Headquarters Environmental Graphics
A Sydney bank uses architecture and wayfinding to support a radical new work model.
Transparency is a big buzzword these days. Politicians and corporations, psychologists and members of the media all strive for it or, at the very least, toss around the word as some sort of ideal practice. But what does it really mean? And more importantly, what does it look like? Ironically, an example may be found in the type of place that prompted the large-scale application of this word in the first place: a financial institution.
Agave Library Environmental Graphics
Hardworking graphics add punch to the community-centered design of the 21st century library.
Think of a public library, and what comes to mind? Perhaps the red-brick blocks of our youth, where fluorescent lighting cast a yellowish glow and anything above a whisper was strictly taboo? Fast-forward to today, and a slew of newly built libraries are conversation starters, awash in natural light, with vibrant colors and patterns beckoning card-holders to linger and explore.
Montreal Science Centre Signage and Branding
Giant 3D pictograms and fresh new signage beckon visitors to the Montreal Science Centre.
Since it opened in 2000, the Montreal Science Centre has become a major attraction along the Old Port of Montreal, drawing more than 7 million visitors so far to explore science and technology through its interactive exhibits.
Tampa Downtown Wayfinding
Lighting the Way
Tampa’s new wayfinding system shows off the city’s assets and gives it a bright new identity.
Tampa’s second-generation wayfinding system needed to connect the city’s 300,000 annual visitors to major destinations, point the way to downtown parking garages, and provide a new pedestrian wayfinding component.
Almost as important, it needed to provide the city with a fresh new identity—minus the clichéd palm tree and beach graphics many people associate with Florida.
In the age of knowledge, architecture is the storyteller.
The year was 1969. In what he called an “Unwarranted Apology” for the discipline, architectural theorist Reyner Banham argued that while technological advances have often dictated innovation, architecture has often been late to adapt. His revelation, so obvious today by 21st century standards, was that mechanical engineering and architectural design cannot be separated.

Giant photos of 134 Sydney women, including the store's eldest customer, 101-year-old Edith Whitlock, covered every window. The project included both color and black and white photos, which ranged in size, some taking up only one window, some covering three or four stories.
