In response to the global crises currently underway, designers from Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America will address what they are seeing in their home states, and what they are doing to help people feel safe, comfortable, confident, and welcome in public places. They will discuss best practices in signage, environments, digital platforms, icon making, and communication given new paradigms and behaviors. And, they will talk about the evolving market demand for experiences in urban centers, retail environments, health care facilities, and university settings.

Aluksne Banitis Station

Honor Award 2019
Best of Show Award 2019
Aluksne Banitis Station

This multimedia exhibition is dedicated to a unique narrow-gauge railway line in Europe that is not only a place for the preservation of collective memory but is still operational today. The goal of the exhibition design was to create a virtual journey within a stationary space by means of a story about the history of the railway and its technical aspects, which would highlight the importance of local industrial heritage in the context of broader transport history.

Anglers' Seats

Honor Award 2019
Anglers' Seats

By creating a visual reference to an aquatic plant, the Bog Arum (Calla Palustris) that one occasionally finds on lake shores around Latvia, the Design Studio H2E team created special angling spaces on Lake Aluksne. In a unique way, these anglers’ seats combine a functional aspect with information about species of fish in the lake and the richness of the culture and nature of the surrounding area.
