Wayfinding: what, how, where and why?

19 May 2017

On Thursday, May 11 2017, Steer Davies Gleave hosted its third Movement Matters event in Los Angeles focused on wayfinding systems. 

We brought together two industry experts to explore how wayfinding can enhance the experience of place to help people explore their surroundings. The speakers highlighted wayfinding best practices and their recent experience working together to develop a comprehensive wayfinding system for the PATH, a sixteen-mile pedestrian tunnel system in Toronto connecting over 1,200 retailers.

The first speaker was James Brown, Principal Consultant at Steer Davies Gleave. He shared his 10+ years of experience designing wayfinding systems across a range of city sizes and typologies. 

Evan Weinberg, Former Policy and Advocacy Manager for Toronto Financial District BIA presented next. He shared his experience partnering with businesses, landlords, Steer Davies Gleave and the City of Toronto to develop a new wayfinding strategy for the PATH, which is used by over 200,000 people daily.

A more detailed summary of the event, with key points and the link to speaker presentations, can be downloaded here.
