The 14th Grands Prix du Design recently recognized two of Entro's environmental design projects as Gold Winners. Congratulations to the teams who designed the programs for the Australian Museum (Sydney) and Artscape Daniels Launchpad, an art and design hub that supports creative entrepreneurship (Toronto).
These two projects are now finalists for a Grand Prize, to be announced in October 2021.
Artscape is a Toronto-based not-for-profit urban development organization that provides creative spaces and community development through arts-based programming. Their newest entity, Artscape Daniels Launchpad, acts as a marketplace of services, resources and opportunities and houses the latest tools, equipment and technology to support creative entrepreneurship. This art and design hub is the ideal environment for artists and designers to fully explore and realize their potential. Entro created a unique brand identity and visual language that we carried through to wayfinding for this breakthrough space.
Australia’s first museum, the Australian Museum (AM) recently underwent a major transformation resulting in redeveloped exhibition areas and expanded public spaces. The AM originally opened to the public in 1857 and has since enlightened visitors on topics ranging from climate change to First Nations knowledge to featured exhibits showcasing scientific research produced by the Australian Museum Research Institute. Entro’s visitor journey program bridges the Museum’s heritage architecture with its contemporary addition. Featuring plantation-sourced Blackbutt timber to evoke First Nations influences; repurposed balustrades from the heritage reclamation to create bespoke signage, and best-in-class accessibility features, the whole ensures a memorable, emotional experience for all: welcoming, clear, respectful, unique, and accessible.
