Volkspark Potsdam

Orientation System Exterior

For the com­pe­ti­tion “Ori­en­ta­tion Sys­tem Volkspark Pots­dam”, Moni­teurs de­vel­oped a sys­tem that opens up the park and its at­trac­tions to the vis­i­tor. The pro­posal dis­tin­guishes it­self from the con­ven­tional signs nor­mally seen around a city. The ori­en­ta­tion sys­tem should be clear and mod­ern and not merely func­tional: large pan­els at the en­trance, po­si­tioned so they are easy to see, but ad­justed so that they do not ob­struct the lines of sight in the park; within the park, as few sign­posts as pos­si­ble, quickly un­der­stand­able, that pro­vide a clear overview of the park. Shown here is the de­sign of a ground plan for the com­pe­ti­tion.
