Museum of Arts and Design Digital Wayfinding and Interactives

Museum of Arts and Design

MAD World

With a newly renovated building, dynamic wayfinding, and engaging interactives, the Museum of Arts and Design enters a new era.

A caterpillar requires 10 days to emerge from its chrysalis as a Monarch butterfly. It takes 10 weeks for a downy cygnet to transform into a Trumpeter swan. For the Museum of Arts and Design, metamorphosis has been a decades-long undertaking.

Newhouse, New Media

At Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications, a double marriage between media and content, tradition and innovation.

It’s hard to imagine a better venue for celebrating the medium and the message than Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. One of the premiere mass communications schools in the U.S., Newhouse is both a bastion of the principles of free press and a beta site for education in the digital era.

Honor Award
Dublin Airport Pier D Environmental Graphics, Dublin Airport Authority, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

Dublin Airport’s new 15,000-sm Pier D has 12 boarding gates and can accommodate up to 10 million passengers per year.

To create visual diversions for passengers, project architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill also worked with the airport on an environmental graphics program featuring mural-sized portraits honoring Ireland’s literary giants. Fully integrated with the interior concept, the graphics help distinguish the gates while responding to the elongated circulation space with a design that seems to change when viewed from various distances.

Honor Award
Go with God, Eduardo Fernandes/Ermida Nossa Senhora da Conceição, R2 Design

When an 18th century Portuguese chapel was reopened as an art gallery, the owners and R2 Design (Porto, Portugal) used its façade as the canvas for an artful typographic composition that recalls the building’s former use, but creates a new cultural venue.

Museum of Arts and Design, Pentagram

The Museum of Arts and Design in New York collects and presents contemporary and historic innovations in craft, art, and design. The museum opened its new home at Two Columbus Circle in September 2008. As part of the museum's relocation, MAD commissioned Pentagram to create static and dynamic interior and exterior signage and wayfinding as well as a suite of interactive interpretive media for the galleries.
