3form Design Awards: Exterior Signage, Interior Signage Featured

In case you missed it, we wanted to hightlight some of the winners and honorable mentions from 3form’s Peoples Choice Awards for environmental graphic design and architectural finish-outs using 3form materials. Among the winners are really nice examples of interior signage and exterior signage as well as a grand-prize winning large environmental graphic display from the Massachusetts Maritime Academy by Perry Dean Rogers | Partners Architects. To view the grand-prize winner as well as all the entries, visit Translucent, 3form’s blog, by clicking here. If you’d like to see a handful of interior signage and exterior signage entries, take a look below.

First Place prize in the Exterior category is the Artists for Humanity EpiCenter by designLAB architects. Click here to view the entry.

Set on a peninsula near Cape Cod, the Massachusetts Maritime Academy has a long and storied connection to the ocean. To celebrate that bond, the main staircase of their new library is wrapped around a “light core” which serves not only as the light source for the stair but also as a beacon to those entering the academy on the main drive. The words, integrated with the Mercator projection, represent the complete text of Nathaniel Philbrick’s award winning novel “in the Heart of the Sea”.

Exterior signage for Diamond Teague Pier. Click here to view the entry.

As part of the Anacostia Trail development initiative, a pedestrian footbridge was constructed to connect the Yards Park and Diamond Teague Park next to the Nationals Baseball Stadium. This pier enabled the trail to continue via the water offering an opportunity to provide educational messaging on the efforts made, by DC Water and other ecological organizations, on the transformation of the Anacostia River and water use in the District of Columbia.

The 3form material was used as a double-panel header on each of two custom tenant directories for this beach area mixed use property. The goal was to mimic light reflecting on wave crests.

The 3Form material was used as a backdrop for the patient alerts panels at North Shore LIJ’s new Katz Women’s Hospital and Zuckerberg Pavilion. Each floor uses a different material.
