As elements of this scale were completed, new
wayfinding logic was introduced in phases and
required integration into the existing wayfinding scheme.
MMC had invested heavily in the legacy wayfinding system that included three linear zones
that were described with names, colors, and the
elevator icons of Capitol, Lincoln, and Garden.
Each zone was supported with interior design
color ways that included finishes and artwork:
For instance, the green Garden Zone included
artwork that primarily used green tones and
garden themes, and the Garden icon had been
integrated into terrazzo flooring. Each zone appeared on each building level, and departments
were identified by the zone they occupied. In
order to save costs and reduce internal interruptions, it was important to retain this basic
organization.
Since elevators serve as landmarks for orientation and are used for circulation, the
updated logic eliminated the zones and centered on elevator cores only. Rather than being located in a zone, interior destinations
are identified as located near a particular elevator, easier to identify and remember. The
elevators retained the original icons, adding
an international symbol for elevator, and used
brighter colors for better distance viewing. In
many cases wayfinding information replaced
the original artwork throughout the facility.
