Rodin and Michelangelo

Honor Award
Rodin and Michelangelo, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Susan Maxman Architects, Willie Fetchko Graphic Design

A quote from Rodin about his fascination with Michelangelo ran along the corridor wall leading to two concurrent Rodin exhibitions, one about Michelangelo's influence on the sculpture. Visitors could pass freely between the exhibits, which were anchored by three graphic scrims that provided an ornate architectural note to the plain gray walls and box-shaped pedestals.

Murals at 22nd & Walnut Streets

Honor Award
Murals at 22nd & Walnut Streets, The Sun Oil Company, Susan Maxman & Partners, Michael Webb (artist)

As part of the renovations to an existing service station, Sunoco commissioned Susan Maxman & Partners and artist Michael Webb to design murals for the end walls of two rowhouses adjoining the property. The problem was to transform the graffiti-covered walls into a visually exciting but subtle depiction of the historic neighborhood. Research revealed that St. James Episcopal Church, designed by Fraser, Furness and Hewitt, occupied the site in 1870 and stimulated construction of the elaborate townhouses nearby.

AMTRAK's Acela

Merit Award
AMTRAK's Acela, AMTRAK/National Railroad Passenger Corporation, Calori & Vanden-Eynden

AMTRAK's Acela Specialty Station Signage Program. The Acela signage breaks new ground in the branding arena. Rather than being logotype-driven, the program derives its branding strength from its sculptural forms.

POD Restaurant

Merit Award
POD Restaurant, Rockwell Group

Inspired by retro-modernism, but without overt reference, Pod is an all white space painted with colored lights. The restaurant features pods (individual spaces), from deuce pods along the dining perimeter, to pods for six to ten people that have internally illuminated color changing table tops. Some design features that make Pod so unique are the high gloss white epoxy walls, acoustic foam ceilings, creamy concrete floor, dipped rubber chairs, and a thirty foot red rubber lounge barge.

Fairmount Park Master Signage

Merit Award
Fairmount Park Master Signage, Fairmount Park Commission, Center City District, Cloud Gehshan Associates

With an astonishing 9,200 acres, 63 neighborhood parks, and a crowded events calendar, the Fairmount Park system is a wonderful resource for Philadelphians and visitors. Cloud Gehshan Associates developed a wayfinding and sign system that extends throughout the park, from the quietest trails through the heart of the city and on to the Delaware waterfront.

Monumental Scrims

Merit Award
Monumental Scrims, NBBJ, Catt Lyon Design

The graphics cladding the ramps of the Philadelphia Eagles' new stadium soften the somewhat harsh industrial appearance. The stadium's close proximity to an interstate and the flight path of Philadelphia International Airport provides excellent visibility for these graphics.
