Wayfinding in the public realm

A talk by Sue Manley

Our city centres, and the type of visitors and their demands,change over time. The talk will concentrate on wayfinding in the urban context. By using a number of case studies such as the City of London, Cambridge and Durham we can see how some places have evolved to respond to contemporary life yet the grain and key landmarks still refer to an earlier time. Wayfinding needs to address these changing requirements
by identifying what is important to visitors now, yet retaining the character and references that make these city centres so distinctive.


Sue Manley is an architect who worked in architectural and urban design practices before setting up her specialist wayfinding company, Placemarque. They have worked on projects throughout the UK.
