LAPD Memorial

Honor Award
LAPD Memorial, Los Angeles Police Foundation, Gensler

Situated on the plaza to the east of the new Los Angeles Police Administration Building, the Memorial for Fallen Officers is a wall of brass and light that marks a transition between the plaza’s formal and informal spaces. From a distance, the 32-ft.-long, 12-ft.-high memorial appears as a solid wall of lit brass. As visitors approach, it becomes evident that the wall is, in fact, a vast assemblage of precision-cut brass plates with custom-drawn letterforms spelling out the names of 202 LAPD officers killed in the line of duty.

Legible London

Honor Award
Legible London, Westminster City Council, Applied Information Group, Lacock Gullam

London is a city of complex structures, partly dating back to medieval times, with few long vistas but a multitude of destinations and attractive areas. With more than 27 million visitors a year, walkability is important. It’s well known that London’s “tube map” is one of the best wayfinding diagrams in the world. But the above-ground terrain has been less well served. Surveys conducted in conjunction with the Legible London program showed that more than 40% of people have been using the tube map for walking, too.
