The new 59,186-capacity Parc Olympique Lyonnais is designed to represent the aspirations of the eponymous local football club, and also of Lyon itself. Populous Activate was commissioned to design the wayfinding strategy and signage for the stadium and surrounding car parks.
The goal of the wayfinding and signage program was to give people the freedom to navigate the stadium easily while they enjoy the events there. This included directing nearly 60,000 people to their seats from multiple points of arrival, as well as sending them out the right way after events.
It’s no secret that tests and textbooks might not be the best way to teach a class of energetic students. Educators are on the hunt for a better way, including the team at the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI). Funded by a grant from the
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Local Projects partnered with NYSCI to get science and math out of the classroom and empower students to take learning into their own hands.
Moscow’s vision is to build a world-class, dual-language, multi-modal transportation network to improve the experience of the city for citizens and visitors alike.

Jacob Riis (1849-1914) was a pioneering newspaper reporter and social reformer in New York at the turn of the 20th century. His then-novel idea of using photographs of the city’s slums to illustrate the plight of impoverished residents established Riis as a forerunner of modern photojournalism.
The Museum of the City of New mounted the first major retrospective of Riis’s photographic work in the United States since World War II. His reportage and photos—while somewhat flawed by personal and political biases—still resonate today.
