Dynamap: Manhattan

Merit Award
Dynamap: Manhattan, Urban Mapping LLC

Dynamap reveals three layers of imagery - street grid, neighborhood delineations, and subway map - depending on how the map is viewed. By changing the angle of viewing, three different thematic layers can be seen. It is lightweight, flexible, durable, and contains no electronics. Maps of urban areas are continually referenced and generally contain an overwhelming amount of data, rendering them difficult to use. This map supports wayfinding in areas where complicated spatial relationships exist.

This is the most comprehensive exhibition ever presented on the ancient city of Petra, located in modern-day Jordan. It features approximately 200 artifacts, including architectural fragments and sculptures, ceramics, and decorative stuccowork. The challenge for this show was to evoke a powerful site without literally recreating it.

Robert F. Wagner Graduate School

Merit Award
Robert F. Wagner Graduate School, Pentagram

In 2004, the Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service moved from a vintage Georgian building on Washington Square Park to a loft in the Puck Building in Soho. Collaborating with project architects Suben/Dougherty Partnership, Pentagram created environmental graphics that integrate the school's mission with its unique building. The interior circulation is grid-like and reminiscent of city streets. The designers created an identity and visual language for the school's printed promotions, and extended this to the environmental graphics for the school.
