Unified Field(New York) debuted a groundbreaking educational and community building tool, created to take the pulse of Arizona State University’s new state-of-the-art Beus Center for Law and Society building, designed by Ennead Architects and Jones Studio for the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.
Unified Field’s experience designers and software developers created the app to provide wayfinding through the new building, to support existing social and event activities, and to encourage greater connectivity within the Center for Law and Society. The app created by Unified Field enables faculty, staff, students, prospective students, alumni and guests to connect with each other and approximately 30 screens that make up the building’s digital signage system, while also providing dynamic directions through the space. The app creates a digital campus within the physical campus.
Packed with university information and pragmatic tools such as contact management, profiles, calendars, notifications of law school information, groups formed by app users, maps and directions, the app allows unprecedented access to the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law’s resources and inhabitants. Content most relevant to a user’s interests appears in the customizable newsfeed, and – based on individual preferences – users receive suggestions for groups to join and people to meet. In addition, the app provides users with frequently updated visualizations that track the most frequent ideas and interests of people, groups, and events, providing a ‘pulse’ of information and trends.
