0 Reviews
This book brings together, for the first time, expertise on all three of the elements which wayfinding is comprised: architecture; graphics; & verbal human interaction, within the context of the built environment. The authors, take the reader from a better understanding of the many types of wayfinding difficulties that people have, & why they have them, through an explanation of what wayfinding is & how the process works, to detailed examinations of the architectural, graphic, audible & tactile components involved in wayfinding design. A prescription, in effect, for a much-needed, brand-new design discipline.
