Designing the User Experience: Guerilla Wayfinding for Mobility

Seattle’s Westlake transit hub is located at a confluence of multimodal networks: light rail, streetcar, regional bus service, and bike share all converge at this point on the boundary between Downtown and South Lake Union. However, the paths between systems are not explicit and locals and tourists alike experience confusion when trying to connect from one mode to another. How can wayfinding and urban design cues help to solve this navigational challenge?

Join VIA Architecture and Commute Seattle for a walk through the hub and take part in the deployment of guerilla wayfinding elements to create and test an interim navigational solution at this vibrant multimodal hub. Walkshop participants will play the role of a commuter, parent, or tourist trying to get between two destinations through the hub.  They will identify (and guerrilla implement) what would make their route easier and safer to navigate. The walkshop will culminate in a networking session where participants share their thoughts and experiences about wayfinding over drinks and refreshments.
