Tate Modern, London is the world’s most visited museum of modern art. An iconic new building by architects Herzog & de Meuron is being added to the south of the existing building to create more display spaces, learning spaces, cafés, restaurants and shops. The first phase will open in 2012 with completion by 2016. Cartlidge Levene and Studio Myerscough have been commissioned to develop the wayfinding and signage to link the old and new spaces and to ensure that the whole building is easily navigable.
This new printed map and dispenser is a first step to test some of our wayfinding principles designed for the new building configuration.
An important aspect of the brief was the design of a freestanding map dispenser, incorporating a donation money box.
