Summary
After many decades of largely industrial use, South Brooklyn’s waterfront is now ready to double as a vibrant leisure destination — without putting an end to any of the buzzing manufacturing activity still underway at Brooklyn Army Terminal. By reconfiguring circulation routes across the 39-hectare warehouse complex, WXY identified new opportunities for landscaped pedestrian plazas and pathways. To bring work and play into even closer dialogue, each of these areas is animated by bold yellow wayfinding stripes and other fun visual flourishes adapted from common logistics management graphics.

Rene Toneman: 2021 AZ Award Winner in Experiential Graphic Design

Staking a commanding position at the heart of the city, The Hague Central railway station is a nexus of regional, local and intercity rail. And, now that it has become home to a breathtaking and seamlessly functional 8,000-spot bike parking facility, it is truly intermodal.

Designed by local creative agency Silo and Delft-based architects Studio Marsman, the cyclists’ haven is a stark contrast to anonymous subterranean spaces. It may be underground, occupying the lower level of a new mixed-use development, but the ambiance is light, airy and delightfully experiential — thanks to its incredible graphic design.

“The graphics almost become kinetic.”
Paul Filek, AZ Awards 2021 Juror
