University of Manitoba, 2011
Signage created at building entrance to set the stage and orient team Exhibitiontheme because basis of graphic identity created through signage
Used corridors and public spaces for display of extra and unconventional projects
Projection with sound enlivened the entryway and showcased making processes
Choose a convenient location and provide plan for orientation
Consider layout to reinforce program attributes… In our case, as a program, it made sense to place the workspace in the center so that team was always surrounded by most advanced studio work. Independent final projects used as first impression upon entrance to space. Consider a strategy for accommodating meeting with groups within the space… rolling displays add flexibility
Independent final projects as first impression
Overall layout with flat files (for extra projects) and vertical surfaces for project display
Detailed signage with coding from curriculum matrix
Work from individual studios: three projects posted for each assignment, boxes hold binders and additional information/programming documents, etc.
Display units for 3D projects, booklets, and course labels
Try to avoid visual clutter and provide empty horizontal surfaces throughout the display
Teams work area with rolling chairs, an empty table and plenty of room to accommodate group conversations with students and the faculty.
Unglamorous but easily repurposed boxes hold course materials that dont include visual materials. Bookshelves hold published final documents from practicum projects near project locations.
Small shelves screwed to vertical surfaces hold materials boards and programming books
Lasercut signage: simple, cheap, recyclable, and easy to see throughout the space
Models mounted to vertical surfaces and binder clips used to display smaller pages
Bound and smaller visual projects displayed on table top for easy access
1:1 three-dimensional projects included
