Assignement 3 – Wayfinding evaluation

Alexis Ziegler
ARC624 | Spring 2020

Designing to support understanding relies heavily on Wayfinding. After visiting the Richardson Olmsted Complex and the Hotel Henry in Buffalo, the class assessed the wayfinding problems in the building. Based on research at the Complex last year, we know that the You Are Here (YAH) maps are a key problem area. The assignment was thus to develop improved prototypes for the Hotel Henry’s YAH maps.
