World Square Carpark

Merit Award
World Square Carpark, Brookfield Multiplex, BrandCulture Communications

Traditionally, car parks are uninviting and disorientating, sometimes to the point of being dangerous. The BrandCulture Communications design team was intent on turning this around at the World Square Car Park, by creating a welcoming environment that is simple to navigate and easy to understand.

Dead Sea Scrolls

Jury Award
Dead Sea Scrolls, Royal Ontario Museum, Royal Ontario Museum

The Dead Sea Scrolls are immeasurable in their cultural and philosophical significance. Physically slight, fragile, and fugitive, the scrolls deserve display with an uncommon design sensibility—one that does not consider the quality of beauty as belonging only to the eyes. The Royal Ontario Museum’s Exhibits & Design Department based its design of the temporary exhibition on best communicating the context, content, and spiritual resonance of the scrolls.

Monastery Street Park

Jury Award
Monastery Street Park, South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association, Loysen + Kreuthmeier Architects

Once perched above steel mills and heavy industry, Pittsburgh’s South Side Slopes grew to become the proximate bedroom community for workers in the South Side Flats. In defiance of the challenging topography, buildings and parks were dotted about the wooded hillside. Connecting them, if gradients were too steep for streets, were stairs by the hundreds that served as public rights-of-way. Today the mills are long gone, and the Flats are better known for a hip urban mix of shops, galleries, and entertainment.

Two Times

Jury Award
Two Times, Ermida Nossa Senhora da Conceição, R2 Design

Dois Tempos (Two Times) is the second in a series of typographical installations produced by R2 Design in the old Hermitage of Nossa Senhora da Conceição, in Belém (Lisbon), now in use as an art gallery.

With the goal of attracting new customers to the gallery, R2 developed a project that could also be integrated in ExperimentaDesign Lisboa 2009, an international design biennial. The biennial theme was “It’s about Time.”
