The Roots of EGD

An excerpt from Richard Poulin’s long-awaited history of environmental graphic design

Graphic Design + Architecture: A 20th-Century History (Rockport Publishers, 2012)

His Way

Patrick Gallagher has followed his own road to success—and along the way, he’s led the design of some of the world’s most memorable museum experiences.

There’s no formal path to a career in museum planning and exhibition design, so Patrick Gallagher has blazed his own.

YOHO Clubhouse Environmental Graphics

Urban + Park = Good Living

One Plus Partnership’s environmental graphics create “green living” for residents of a Hong Kong high-rise.

Residents of YOHO Midtown, one of Hong Kong’s newest luxury high-rises, love urban living but also yearn for a connection to nature—a rare experience in their crowded metropolis.

Commissioned to design the interiors for the complex’s four-story, 37,000-square-foot clubhouse/recreation center, One Plus Partnership (Hong Kong) was committed to giving them what they wanted.

By the Book

PenguinCube’s donor wall for a non-profit art school shows that big ideas can be better than big budgets.

The Ashkal Alwan Home Workspace is a unique, scholarship-driven contemporary arts school and artist residency space that opened in Beirut in 2011. It provides a tuition-free program for 15 young artists and cultural practitioners to work for 11 months alongside a resident scholar.  

100 Years Exhibition

100 Years Young

Pentagram’s exhibition for The New York Public Library celebrates a special birthday for the landmark building it calls home.

The New York Public Library may be better known for Patience and Fortitude, the regal marble lions guarding the entrance to its main branch at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street, than it is for the 60 million artifacts it holds.  

Reflex

P-06 creates a reflective exhibition celebrating the centennial of the Portuguese Constitution of 1911.

One hundred years after the Portuguese Constitution of 1911 inaugurated the country’s first republican government, the Portuguese Assembly wanted to celebrate its impact and remind visitors that the Constitution is more than just a piece of paper.

P-06 Atelier (Lisbon) was tasked with creating an exhibition in its honor in the antechamber to the Assembly of the Republic, housed in a 400-year-old neoclassical palace.
