Urban Sign and Cloud Gehshan: Philadelphia Rail Park

The Newly Opened Philadelphia Rail Park Elevated Park - Phase One

SEGD Members Cloud Gehshan and Urban Sign worked on the recently opened Philadelphia elevated park. Phase one is the prototype of a park that will be twice as wide and twice as long as the New York High Line. Urban Sign employed laser cutting and delicate metal fabrication to help the designers capture the feel of the gritty neighborhood while supporting an interpretive approach that is legible and tactile.

Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor

Finalist 2018
Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor

An extraordinary exhibit over 2,000 years in the making, Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor explores the remarkable science behind China’s ancient terracotta figures through engaging interactives, powerful media, compelling graphics and more.

One of the greatest challenges faced was the size and scope of the story, interpreting a site with over 8,000 life-size statues, 120 chariots, and 520 horses. The exhibit had at least 10 full-sized figures, and over 100 precious artifacts of jade, gold and bronze spanning 500 years in ancient China’s history.
