Adidas Laces Wayfinding and Graphics

From the SEGD Archives, circa 2014: At Adidas' new research and design building, Büro Uebule uses turbocharged typography to express the essence of sports.

Pike & Rose is a mixed-use neighborhood North Bethesda, Maryland. It will occupy over 32 acres when complete, with buildings ranging up to 20 stories. It’s approximately $1.5 billion in new construction and replaces an old strip shopping center with huge parking lots, a great exercise in East coast density and reuse.

Pioneer Square is home to stark contrasts. Art galleries, boutique restaurants, high-end housing and blossoming tech startups within historic buildings are contrasted by homelessness, development limitations, a hub of mental health facilities and lack of urban-enhancing amenities. Many empty or under-utilized properties await future change, and the Map the Square team (the Young Architects Forum of Seattle AIA) sought to influence this design change by inviting the public voice.

This project’s challenge was to animate a historic architectural treasure—an 1832 Quaker stone barn in Sandy Spring, Maryland—with the stories of those who once inhabited the farm and its community. Howard+Revis were asked to help a 21st-century audience make a personal connection to the daily challenges, failures and triumphs of a bygone era, and re-imagine a time when this heavily populated region was quiet farm country.

The Sarang Community Church was established in 1978 with 800 members. The church quickly outgrew its facility in Gangnam and, as the area continued to develop rapidly, the church was left with few options for expansion to meet the spatial needs of the growing congregation. When an opportunity arose to purchase a large plot of land just a little over a mile west from the former site, the church raised the necessary funds to secure the land and began raising more funds for the construction of the new facility through the generous gifts of its members.

ARoS Public is a radical rethinking of the museum experience as a modern community center. At the heart is the belief that art is not a diversion or weekend entertainment, but rather that it has a crucial job to do and is most valuable when interaction sparks new forms of social exchange.

Blossom Interactive is an interactive sculpture connected to social media to raise awareness for hunger issues in Philadelphia. Working with the University of Pennsylvania's non-profit community engagement program, the team installed the six-foot tall flower at Locust Walk and 37th St from September 14 to 28 during Hunger Action Month. Hunger is a community problem and requires a community-wide response. Thousands of people in cities such as Philadelphia deal with hunger each day, often suffering in silence.

Focusing on the many layers of “connection” our minds make on a daily basis, the Allen Institute for Brain Science’s environmental graphics program reflects the organization’s collaborative approach to neuro-research. The cornerstone of the graphics program is "Pathways", a 150-foot light box with color changing LEDs and printed graphic panels displayed on the building exterior. It is a public art installation that visually interprets different ways in which neural pathways connect– a theme that recurs throughout the entire graphics program.

Bloomberg is upgrading many of it global offices to the perfect intersection between the Bloomberg brand and the specific location—including the architecture of the space, the journalistic activities happening there and then the backdrop of the location.

In 2015, the Drucker Institute acquired the home of its namesake, management guru Peter Drucker. Drucker, hailed by BusinessWeek as “the man who invented management,” spent his most
productive years in the modest California ranch house, writing more than two dozen books there and counseling generations of leading CEOs and thinkers within its walls. The aim of Drucker
House was not only to preserve the residence as a historical site but also to provide a rich interpretive experience that tells the story of Peter Drucker's life and work.
