In the past, few realized the contribution of sign systems, maps, and directive architectural elements to the positive human experience of a building or urban setting. Today, these "wayfinding" considerations are even more important for keeping our complex, multifunctional habitats user-friendly and danger-free. This updated paperback edition explores how human spaces relate to the design and implementation of sign systems, maps, information booths, and other directional elements in both architectural and urban environments, complete with strategies for minimizing gridlock, promoting safety, and improving overall quality of life. Numerous illustrations, examples, and problem-solving diagrams help you meet specific design challenges effectively. Cultural and historical aspects of wayfinding are also covered.
