The system includes vehicular and pedestrian directionals, orientation stations, sheltered kiosks, and building identification signs. Architectural gateways of local limestone and glass were recently installed, marking the entrance to the 600-acre campus.

Johns Hopkins i-Site Information Kiosk

Jury Award
Johns Hopkins i-Site Information Kiosk, Johns Hopkins University, Cloud Gehshan Associates

This network of twelve computerized kiosks creates one-stop wayfinding centers for visitors. The i-Sites integrate existing leading-edge technology with customized components and software. A psychologist worked with the design team on the user interface; redundancy (where users are offered more than one way to get information) was key to the design, which was extensively field-tested. Although high-tech, the low-profile units are designed to fit into a campus where the traditional architecture and park-like grounds are paramount.
