Batoche National Historic Site

Finalist 2017
Batoche National Historic Site

As sesquicentennial celebrations unfold, it is important not to overlook Canada’s pre-Confederation and first nations heritage. This experiential design undertaking is aimed at strengthening ties between the Canadian Government and the Métis Nation—Saskatchewan. At the heart of this history is a land dispute, the source of inspiration for Form Media’s core concept. Our parti focuses on two opposing methods of landholding: a thoughtful linear and river-oriented allotment by a semi-nomadic turned agrarian people versus an unnatural grid-based system imposed on one nation by another.

Nanjing Insun Feeling Cinema

Insun Lotte Cinema

This Nanjing cinema is located next to historical buildings but also chic and modern architecture, perfectly illustrating the East meets West vibe. Thus inspired, One Plus Partnership combined traditional and modern elements to highlight the importance of sound in movies from characters’ dialogue to sound effects and musical scores. It was challenging to turn this conceptual idea into interior design as sound is itself invisible, so the designers created a 3D portrayal of sound waves.

University of Canterbury Temporary Hoarding

Christchurch suffered a series of earthquakes in 2010 and 2011, causing loss of life and widespread damage to the city. The University of Canterbury’s campus was acutely affected, triggering remediation works to many buildings and a new building program. This meant that many students would complete their whole time at the University while much of the campus was a building site. The University wanted to keep the changing environment looking vibrant and welcoming for students, staff and visitors to the large and complex campus.

Innovation Plaza

University City Science Center, the nation’s largest and oldest urban research park, has continued expanding its footprint. The ex;it design team was originally commissioned to create a wayfinding program to help visitors navigate the campus. However, ex;it identified a broader opportunity to connect the Science Center with the larger University City District. The 37th Street walkway—named Innovation Plaza—is now a welcoming hub of learning and leisure.

Stolen Heart Video Map

The Stolen Heart Video Map, a three-dimensional projection map, is the signature element of the small but powerful exhibition “Stolen Heart: The Theft of Jewish Property in Berlin’s Historic Center, 1933–1945.” The exhibition and map by C&G Partners track the expropriation of Jewish homes and business by state-sponsored Aryanization during the Third Reich in Berlin. The exhibition was adapted from the exhibition "Geraubte Mitte: Die Arisierung des jüdischen Grundeigentums im Berliner Stadtkern 1933–1945," which opened at the Berlin Stadtmuseum in 2013.

Pike & Rose is a mixed-use neighborhood North Bethesda, Maryland. It will occupy over 32 acres when complete, with buildings ranging up to 20 stories. It’s approximately $1.5 billion in new construction and replaces an old strip shopping center with huge parking lots, a great exercise in East coast density and reuse.
