Dublin Airport Pier D Environmental Graphics

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.

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.

Maxxi National Museum of XXI Century Arts

Honor Award
Maxxi National Museum of XXI Century Arts, ma:design SRL

MAXXI, the Zaha Hadid-designed national museum of contemporary art in Rome, opened in May 2010. Hadid created a building characterized by sinuous and geometric shapes, volumes that separate from the main building to overlook the city, exposed cement, modulation of natural light, and the use of white in all its shades.

The MAXXI Foundation wanted the signage system to provide essential information in a clear, visible, but non-invasive way. Ma:design conceived the signage system to reflect the architectural concepts of using light/shadow, full/empty, and rigid/organic shapes.
