Architect: Anshen + Allen

Description: Design of comprehensive sign masterplan for the 200-acre landmark research campus. Graphics include wayfinding system, vehicular and pedestrian signage; identification and extensive donor recognition program. The signage design reflects both the new and existing architecture through its construction and use of materials, which include carved travertine and stainless steel. This palette was expanded by subtle differences in the finishes of the stainless steel such as etch, sandblast, and bead-blast.
