About
The studio was asked to create a series of permanent interpretive signs for the Greenwich Peninsular riverside walkway. Each sign was distinctively different in scale and shape to illustrate different subjects and content. The signs included a 10-metre high totem depicting the tidal range of the river in 1:1 scale and the variety of species it supports, a 20-metre long timeline showing 10,000 years of history relating to the Thames, a stepped sign illustrating the  the wildlife of the riverside terraces and a circular ‘hide’ sign showing the birds and insect species that can be found in the ecology park and flying overhead.

All wayfinding is fabricated with durability in mind in hardwearing vitreous enamel, enabling it to cope with external weather conditions along the Thames. With the opening of the Emirates cable car over to Greenwich Peninsular new audiences are able to enjoy the stories and information that still look colourful and attractive.
