People Flow – Wayfinder’s Perspective

Moniteurs at the Architecture Biennale

Moniteurs will present a project as part of the Time Space Existence exhibition organized by the European Cultural Center at the 2023 Venice Architecture Biennale. A three-dimensional model with video installation shows a variety of routes through a european urban transportation hub. Tying into the Biennale theme of “Laboratories of the Future,” this project opens up the conversation of whether effective wayfinding can help reduce a city’s carbon footprint.

Pictograms in focus

Symbol Group Symposium

The Symbol Group is a new international discussion group for symbol-related topics. The goal is to promote a deeper appreciation of the symbol. The group organizes regular symposia to which specialists are invited. Sibylle Schlaich from Moniteurs spoke to the international audience in October about the challenge of creating a gender neutral pictogram for “person”.
