Johns Hopkins i-Site Information Kiosk

Jury Award
Johns Hopkins i-Site Information Kiosk, Johns Hopkins University, Cloud Gehshan Associates

This network of twelve computerized kiosks creates one-stop wayfinding centers for visitors. The i-Sites integrate existing leading-edge technology with customized components and software. A psychologist worked with the design team on the user interface; redundancy (where users are offered more than one way to get information) was key to the design, which was extensively field-tested. Although high-tech, the low-profile units are designed to fit into a campus where the traditional architecture and park-like grounds are paramount.

Bond Street Wharf

Merit Award
Bond Street Wharf, Struever Bros., Eccles & Rouse, RTKL Associates, ID8 of RTKL

Fells Point, one of Baltimore's oldest neighborhoods, began as a bustling shipbuilding and shipping center in colonial America and is today experiencing a revival. The area retains its charm with cobblestone streets, old saloons, and countless boats – many still carrying goods to harbor-side warehouses such as Bond Street Wharf, a structure recently rebuilt after it was burned down for the movie Avalon.

Pikesville Animal Hospital

Merit Award
Pikesville Animal Hospital, Carey M. Zumpano, DVM, Shaw Jelveh Design

A new veterinary practice for dogs and cats required a fresh brand and environment in which excellent design is integral to the practice’s philosophy of superior care. Among the challenges to creating a memorable and distinctive sense of place were the fact that the hospital—formerly a dental office—is located in a typical suburban strip mall with a mediocre architectural storefront. In addition, the young veterinarian’s low budget required an inexpensive solution.

As the designer of record for Oriole Park at Camden Yards since 1992, Ashton Design has been responsible for developing and maintaining the ballpark’s complete graphic vision—from exterior, wayfinding, and ADA signage to placemaking. In the stadium’s branding, Ashton Design has drawn inspiration from the team and city history, and in-depth research has resulted in many unique and authentic touches, including the ornithologically accurate Baltimore Orioles weather vanes above the scoreboard.
