Finalist 2020
Princeton International Atrium

To commemorate the new Louis A. Simpson International Building, we were asked to create a distinctive spatial identity that celebrates Princeton University’s international approach to education and research. We designed a floor installation that spans three levels and 7200 sq. ft., featuring quotations from global authors. The concentric pattern comprises thousands of dots, lines, and silver vinyl letters sealed beneath permanent coats of epoxy and matte polyurethane to appear engraved directly onto the tile.

The exhibition includes stories of its most famous dwellers—founding fathers, entrepreneurs, and New Jersey governors—but also, for the first time, poignant and heroic accounts of women revolutionaries, people of color, servants, and slaves.

Throughout February, SEGD is focusing on the importance of experience design and experience designers to amplify, celebrate and bring Black culture and history to the forefront. To do this, we are sharing a curated weekly series of video presentations from 2020 featuring designers in our SEGD community speaking about their roles in presenting difficult historical topics while engaging audiences through specific design strategies. Next up, on February 17, is “Equity and Justice in the COVID Age” presented by Andy Chen and Waqas Jawaid of Isometric Studio.
