Re-Imagining Wayfinding Exhibition
221A East Georgia St. Vancouver

Written By Catherine Pulkinghorn

Re-Imagining Wayfinding brought together local inter-generational residents, as part of Pulkinghorn’s two year residency at the Roundhouse Community Centre, to consider the user experience of the Master Planned neighbourhood of Yaletown, in downtown Vancouver. The first phase of the project consisted of community-based co-research conducted throughout 2012 to examine and interpret existing forms of wayfinding through a series of artist-led walks. The second phase extended these outcomes, empowering participants through workshops that led to the development of ideas for creating adapted, spontaneous, and community-based wayfinding signage. The 2013 youth design team worked with Catherine to develop a new set of signs for the neighbourhood, some of which were temporarily installed in David Lam Park on June 8, 2013 as part of an Urban Intervention, and are now exhibiting, with other new work, at 221A.
