NELA Wayfinding Signage

nela-wayfinding

The collective identify of all the NELA neighborhoods is slowly being defined. This project proposes to enhance the visibility, mobility, and programmatic activities of area by developing and implementing a shared identity for the Riverfront. Placemaking modules reinforce the uniqueness of each of the five neighborhoods and simultaneously create a shared identity through signage, furniture, sculptures, and other wayfinding strategies.

A key principle in this project is a commitment to creating spaces that bring people together, not as tourists, but as community members engaged in their built environment. Through a participatory planning process, flexible designs will be implemented across three scales: pedestrian/bicyclist, vehicular, and area-wide.

Project submitted by studio Permativo, Honorable Mention winner of the NELA-wide category in the Design Competition.
