0.50 Credit(s)
Navigating the complexities of the built environment easily and intuitively, whether crossing the country, the city, an airport or moving through a digital environment requires intelligent and innovative methods of wayfinding. Information systems and signs are instruments designed to create a dialogue with their audience. The understanding of the complexities of public space, the nature of the environment, the expectations of performance and issues of functionality are addressed in this course. Exercises and projects that challenge students on issues of hierarchy, readability/legibility, colour, fabrication and sustainability are an integral part of this studio course.
