Honor Award 2018
London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE

The London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE mixes original archaeology, next-generation installations and contemporary art commissions, inviting visitors to encounter an ancient mystery cult. Buried below London for almost two millennia, the Roman Temple of Mithras is returned to the site of its original discovery in a free new cultural space that re-imagines how we engage with archaeology.

The Handmaid’s Tale

Honor Award 2018
"The Handmaid’s Tale" Highline Installation

Hulu launched its new series adaption of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” the dystopian classic by Margaret Atwood. Pentagram designed a new interactive public art installation to celebrates the series by distributing 4,000 free copies of the book. The project was displayed in a high-profile location at the High Line in New York.

The novel is set in Gilead, a future theocracy where women have been stripped of their rights and subjugated into roles as “handmaids” used expressly for procreation.

DZNE Signage System

Honor Award 2018
DZNE German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases Signage System

DZNE (German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases) is the only research institute in Germany dedicated to dementia and all its facets. The task for büro uebele visuelle kommunikation was to create an overall atmosphere, to develop the identity of the place alongside planning a wayfinding system.

Since the building contains clean rooms, the interior design is mainly colored in monochromatic white. To maintain a friendly working environment, büro uebele visuelle kommunikation was asked to harmonize the space partly with color.

Row DTLA

Honor Award 2018
Row DTLA

At the new downtown development ROW DTLA, Rios Clementi Hale Studios used place-led branding to reveal the story and uniqueness of the place. Layers of the site’s past remained throughout the development: faded signage, timeworn concrete and a gritty patina that was important as a bit of the history of the Produce Market, which is still functioning today. A fresh skim-coat would have wiped these important imprints away but celebrating them gives the site an authenticity that can’t be recreated.

Denver RTD G-Line Windscreens

Honor Award 2018
Denver RTD G-Line Windscreens

The Windscreens run the full length of the RTD G-Line, a 10-mile stretch from Denver’s Union Station to the City of Wheat Ridge, applied to each of the 17 waiting areas on seven station platforms.

The idea was to develop a unique work of art linking each of the stations together as a cohesive whole. Ditroën developed a concept to create a visual attraction that engages and entertains riders as well as leaving them with a story and a deeper sense of the very place where they find themselves waiting for the next train.
