What next for legible cities
An assessment of the potential future for urban wayfinding
In this article, the forces that will impact the
development of cities as information hubs are assessed
and proposed. By analysing the recent direction and
trajectory of development, and using assessments
from other professions, this article outlines the
future of wayfinding as a distinct profession and set
of connected activities. It highlights the growing
influence of the need for optimization, and not just
the construction of cities transport systems. Finally,
it creates a blueprint for how Legible Cities will be built
in the future.
