Complex solution simply communicated

11th April 2012: Here is a video that was the final design delivery of a very complex project.

 

The video demonstrates how a series of orchestrated interventions in a solution derived from a deep analyses of a very complex system can be made accessible and communicative.

AHO - Systems Oriented Design - fall 2011

Prof. Birger Sevaldson with Adrian Paulsen

In collaboration with our partner UDI (Norwegian Directorate of Immigration), we have explored a new way of navigation in space, namely the “economy of signage”.
Our proposal is the result of multiples findings, especially using GIGA-mapping as a tool to provide new guidelines for the 17 new offices which will be opened in Norway, starting from 2013.

The result of our researches is a combination of 3 proposals, not only dealing with a physical space, but with an interior experience:

1. Making the Oslo office an example of beneficial way-finding

2. Providing guidelines to be implemented into upcoming offices (in respect of their locations, sizes, etc.)

3. Mapping of the senses.
