2021 Wayfinding and Placemaking

The 2021 Wayfinding + Placemaking Symposium will bring together innovators and award-winning experiential designers who are working across the globe to create meaningful experiences that connect people to place. Looking at projects from airports and education campuses to corporate headquarters and public spaces, we will reflect on design through a dynamic cultural lens.

Sessions and roundtables will provoke conversations around cultural sensitivities and nuances, while exploring processes and design solutions that build meaningful connections and thoughtful representation.
