Vancouver Community Library Wayfinding Receives SEGD Merit Award

vancouverlibraryawardMayer/Reed was honored with a Merit Award in the 2014 SEGD Global Design Awards Program for our wayfinding design on the Vancouver Community Library. The design team of Mayer/Reed (wayfinding), The Miller Hull Partnership (architecture), and AldrichPears (interpretive installation) was among 32 recognized for excellence in environmental graphic design among 412 entries.

“A seamless integration of architecture and wayfinding—a symphony of materials and finishes—a playful interplay of scale and architecture. An imaginative wayfinding system for a multi-storied library. This project shows what a library can be as opposed to what it has been traditionally.”
