Way finding icon for History of Natural Museum
I am interested in doing way-finding icons for California Academy of Sciences
in San Francisco, CA.
It is a renowned scientific and educational institution dedicated to exploring,
explaining, andsustaining life on Earth.
Sustainability was a key aspect of the design, as this project is one of the ten pilot “green
building” projects of the San Francisco Department of Environment.
The U.S. Green Building Council presented the Academy with “Double LEED Platinum”.
The building is designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, and it houses an aquarium,
planetarium, natural history museum, and world-class research and education programs
under one living roof, standing as an embodiment of its 158-year-old mission to
explore, explain, and protect the natural world.
I want to design way finding icons for aquarium,planetarium, natural history museum,
research and education laboratory and ofcourse restroom and food court area.
I want to take into consideration elemants like sustainability, orangic forms, natural elements
like nature (birds, animals,water etc.) Green color would play an important part
in the design process. I also want the icons to be simplified and not complicated.Sketches
