Design and functionality
Triple awards for BASEL INFO
BURRI helped bring the pedestrian orientation in the canton of Basel-Stadt to successful completion in the summer of 2017 in cooperation with Steinmann & Schmid Architekten AG and Lengsfeld Designkonzepte.
In addition to practical functions, the new pedestrian orientation also helps to confer a sense of identity to the location. The city is now enjoying a new and characteristic feature, which runs like a thread through the city.
More recently, the project ‘Basel Info – new pedestrian orientation for Basel-Stadt’ was the recipient of three awards. BASEL INFO received a ‘Special Mention’ from the German Design Award in the ‘Excellent Communication Design’ category.
