Construction and Design Manual
Wayfinding and Signage


Signage may initially seem an unexciting topic, but anyone who has become befuddled while attempting to negotiate the gloriously opaque passageways of London's Barbican Centre will testify that adequate directions for visitors, and indeed for vague residents, can serve as a useful aid to maintaining one's sanity. This book's title is no mere rhetorical play on words, but refers to a concrete problem which needs to be solved.The book's goal is to communicate knowledge which helps in the planning, design and execution of effective signing and orientation systems, principally for sites attracting a lot of tourists and other one-off or occasional visitors. International examples come from all areas of the tourist sector: congress centres, hotels, health and wellness facilities, museums and parking structures are all presented to demonstrate how it can, and should, be done. This title is a fine addition to a field short of substantial literature, and will appeal to planners, architects and designers alike.
