Out of Line

Merit Award 2018
Out of Line

“Drawing can give form to thoughts, lead to new ideas, make the invisible visible, and be the means to dream. This studio is a place to use drawing as a tool in these ways and more.”

This was the introduction to Out of Line, an open studio space for RISD Museum visitors during the run of the exhibition Lines of Thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to Now from the British Museum (October 6, 2017–January 7, 2018).

Hablamos Juntos Universal Health Care Symbols

"We Speak Together"

A groundbreaking research effort produces universal symbols for health-care settings—and underscores the value of evidence-based design.

Patients, family members, and other visitors entering the doors of a hospital or other health-care facility face a daunting environment. Between them and their final destination, they will encounter a series of obstacles: multiple elevator banks, long and often identical-looking corridors, complex routes to distant departments or buildings, and often, ineffective wayfinding signage.

Concerns of the Day

Merit Award
Concerns of the Day, Rhode Island School of Design, Cheryl Hanba, Molly Schoenhoff

This exhibit focuses on uncovering the history of Market House, the oldest building on the Rhode Island School of Design campus. This historic site has long been known as a center of commerce, a public gathering place. Our goal was to create a dialogue between three layers of history researched: public commerce, private domestic life and the undocumented existence of the working class. We also strove to reveal the parallels between our current social concerns and those of the past.

City of Newport Sign Program

Jury Award
City of Newport Sign Program, Newport Chamber of Commerce, Roll Barresi & Associates

The key to the program was to first direct visitors to the Tranportation and Visitor Center, centrally located on the Newport Waterfront. This facility has a large parking garage and serves as the transportation hub for buses and shuttles serving all parts of the city. The goal was to get visitors to parking areas as quicky and expeditiously as possible, get them out of their cars and encourage them to experience Newport at its best: on foot.

Brown University Friedman Study Center Signage

Merit Award
Brown University Friedman Study Center Signage, Open

Built in 1971, the Sciences Library at Brown University is the kind of building you see at a lot of colleges: big, bold, and modern, but not warm or comfortable—and not well loved by many people on campus. In 2006, Brown decided to convert the first three levels of the building into the Susan P. and Richard A. Friedman Study Center. Open 24 hours a day, the center offers a variety of spaces where students can work, gather, and collaborate.
