Jianianhua Building

Honor Award
Jianianhua Building, Chongqing Financial Street Real Estate Co., Ltd.,  Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP

This new mixed-use retail and office complex is in the heart of a port city in southwest China. As part of a redevelopment master plan, the city commissioned the design of a central park and plaza, to be anchored by the Jianianhua building. To counteract the grayness of the region and respond to the intense visual activity of the city center, the building elevates the potential of environmental graphics as civic art form.

The goal of this project was to create an environment that reflects both outstanding athletic and academic achievement. A collage of images represent each athletic program at the university. Complementing these images are action shots of various student athletes participating in each individual sport and a video display. Moving into the study area, viewers are able to follow an abstract time line honoring past Academic All-Americans and their achievements.

Lankenau Hospital Wayfinding System

Honor Award
Lankenau Hospital Wayfinding System, Main Line Health - Lankenau Hospital, AGS, ex;it

If healthcare is considered as a journey, then why not provide tools to support all phases of the process, from the time an appointment is made, through to leaving the scheduled procedure? In fact, why not measure how the visitor experiences navigating the facility and use the findings to guide the priorities of a phased implementation plan? Lankenau Hospital agreed with this cutting-edge approach and undertook a program of pre-arrival destination cards, wayfinding guides, exterior and interior signage, and volunteer training.

NeXtwork Convention

Honor Award
NeXtwork Convention, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Two Twelve Associates

The communication goal for this internal brand gathering was to engage and encourage managers and owners to think differently about their roles within the company as it moves away from a focus on real estate to a vision of the collection of Starwood lifestyle brands. The role of the environmental graphic designers was to immerse them in the brand-centric vision, excite, and surprise them with multi-sensory experiences as they mingled in a large lobby space.
