The idea of this wayfinding system is to let the children themselves come up with their own designs. A non-place like a parking garage becomes a linchpin of children’s imagination throughout their drawings. The colour concept enables to differentiate the four classrooms. Individual icons for each child provide additional orientation and create a first personal marking structure. Leading towards the emerging sense of type, a further and careful adaptation process inspired a typographical and symbolic wayfinding system, suited to be friendly but distinctive and blend in perfectly.
