"Following seven years of major refurbishment the Barbican now has a fresh look, which complements its forward-thinking vision as Europe's largest arts centre. Cartlidge Levene and Studio Myerscough have developed new signage and introduced bold graphic intervention to create a wayfinding logic that doesn't rely on a profusion of signs.
Working as a fully integrated team, alongside architectural practice Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, architectural intervention and signage have been conceived together to bring clarity and cohesion to a once un-navigable space.
Ian Cartlidge will talk about the background to the project, the design process and explain how the design team have resolved the significant issues."
