Branching Out

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.

On Axis with Nature

A new children's hospital with LEED ambitions takes an organic approach to wayfinding.

It’s not often that hospital wayfinding systems are created from the ground up, but when new construction is involved, designers have a rare opportunity to integrate wayfinding cues into the architectural fabric of the building. And when that hospital is built to LEED standards, a whole new vocabulary of materials and processes is created.

ASI (Dallas) has added new design features to its Pacific Interior curved-face modular interior signage system.

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.
