This text spells out the principles of wayfinding and applies them to architectural design. beginning with spatial, orientation, and perception factors, the book shows how well-designed routes and destinations must integrate a wide range of stimuli - graphic, verbal, auditory, and tactile. Plus, convenient checklists show how to prevent potential wayfinding problems in the design stage and to troubleshoot them in existing structures. Supported by numerous real-life examples and hundreds of lively illustrations, this book is a complete guide to spatial direction and logical orientation in buildings and public spaces - jam-packed with proven techniques for helping people find their way through today's confusing world.
