Village Works: Photographs by Women in China's Yunnan Province

Village Works is an exhibition of a photo project documenting life in a remote Chinese province, with photos taken by local women. Designing the show meant dealing with issues of how to appropriately show the photos in the context of an art museum. Sealing them off in frames would signify them as art and possibly obscure their immediacy. Also, there were no original prints to show; the photos had been scanned and existed digitally.

United Airlines Hangar Mural

Honor Award
United Airlines Hangar Mural, Pentagram

As part of the expansion of Logan International Airport in Boston, an entire section of new aircraft hangars, known as Hangar Row, is being configured. Pentagram was asked by its long-time client, United Airlines, to develop a graphic façade for its new hangar, the first to appear on Hangar Row. The criteria for the design were that it needed to feel distinctly United and that it should be a visual event with the potential to become an airport landmark for those flying into and out of Boston.

MIT Wayfinding & Signage

Honor Award
MIT Wayfinding & Signage, Olin Partnership and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Joel Katz Design Associates

This master plan addresses the unique urban conditions of MIT's Cambridge campus, the confusing array of destinations encountered by visitors, new students, and faculty, and the lack of any comprehensive wayfinding system. The campus can be opaque and visually unnavigable to the uninitiated.

The Cloud Foundation Sign System

Merit Award
The Cloud Foundation Sign System, plus design

The Cloud Foundation is about the process of at-risk children realizing their dreams through the arts. The concept was to create a sign system that reminds the user of being a child, lying on the grass, and looking up to the bright blue sky to see the clouds…imagining the possibilities. The challenge was finding materials that felt cloud-like, semi-opaque but not transparent, light, and fluffy.
