As professionals who design and build experiential spaces, our work connects people to place in myriad meaningful ways. In the midst of a multiple global crises, public spaces are problematic, and wayfinding and placemaking solutions need to extend beyond creating navigable and compelling spaces to provide greater safety, security, and peace of mind for users.
In this moment, we are called to reimagine public spaces: How do we communicate and create places that engage and connect, when gathering is a risk and possible futures are unclear? SEGD’s “Wayfinding + Placemaking NOW” is a virtual mini-series that seeks to answer these questions, and more.
Spanning two half-day sessions, public policy experts and designers, including SEGD Global Design Award-winners, will reveal their solutions for connecting—in all ways—to place. We’ll explore recent projects that capitalize on local community resources and assets, available technologies, and in-depth research, and will look at fresh approaches to inclusion, accessibility, safety, education, and universal design.
