Footnotes

Wayfinding isn’t just about signs. Signage is one tool we use to create legible environments. Wayfinding starts with the architecture and the way the space is designed. Wayfinding cues and clues can be found within the architecture and the landscape environment. ➡︎

The original development was characterised by notoriously difficult visitor navigation – a confusion made worse by the lack of street address (its several entrances linked to carparking and a London-wide ‘skyway’ system that was never fully realised) and years of accumulated visual clutter. ➡︎
