V&A Wayfinding

Honor Award 2020
V&A Wayfinding

Over the last 10 years, visitor numbers at the V&A have tripled. In order to protect its future, the design team was asked to create a comprehensive wayfinding system unifying seven miles of galleries across three interconnected buildings, five temporary exhibition spaces, four shops, three cafés and 60,000 objects to enable the V&A’s 4 million annual visitors from across the world to explore the museum with renewed confidence and curiosity.

Wayfinding for the Visually Impaired

Visually Impaired Research, RCA

The Sound of North

A Royal College of Art researcher harnesses digital technology to provide wayfinding solutions for the visually impaired.

New technologies such as RFID tags, Quick Response codes, and Wi-fi routers are dramatically altering wayfinding solutions for the sighted, but digital wayfinding tools for the visually impaired have been slower to develop.

David Sweeney, a research associate with London’s Royal College of Art, is changing all that.
