Wayfinding

Filling the gaps

23 November 2012

There’s an art to making cities more enjoyable places to move around in – it’s called having a citywide wayfinding strategy. London, New York, and Vancouver have them, and now we’re developing one for Toronto.

Wayfinding strategies can make cities more attractive and competitive – they make them easier to navigate, encourage walking, better inform visitors, and increase transit use. And that’s exactly what Toronto is hoping to do as the city experiences a burst of new developments and gears up to host the 2015 PanAm Games.

Proposed changes to the current system include better visual branding of cultural areas and the use of mobile apps.Currently in the public information stage, the project is set to move into Phase 2 which will include design work before Phase 3 which will see the upgraded system rolled out across the city.
