Australian Museum receives 2021 Sydney Design Award DRIVENxDESGN

November 30, 2021


Entro is delighted to announce that our wayfinding program for the Australian Museum has received a Gold in the 2021 Sydney Design Awards DRIVENxDESIGN!

Prioritising a highly collaborative process with stakeholders, Entro designed a wayfinding strategy that embodies the museum, incorporating native Australian materials that complement the Museum’s heritage architectural features. Plantation-sourced Blackbutt timber was used in positive and negative forms, evoking the natural world and First Nations influences respectfully.

This award celebrates creative and innovative design in the ways people orient themselves in physical space, and navigate from place to place. Consideration was given to signage and other graphic communication, clues in the building's spatial grammar, logical space planning, audible communication, tactile elements and provision for special-needs users.
