STERNS SQUARE

PRACTICE: Environmental Design

 

STUDIO: Arrowstreet

Stearns Square is a rundown neighborhood in need of revitalization, part of that revitalization was painting the exterior of a building that was directly across this urban, city square area. The project was part of my internship at Arrowstreet in Boston.

 

Stearns Square is located in Springfield, Massachusetts.

THE CONCEPT

The exterior design derived from the need for simplicity and a limited budget. With a splash of color and the dynamic lines, this design is clean and fun. The linework was inspired by the street maps of the area. The typography chosen is DIN Condense for its stencil-like figure.
