Poulin + Morris developed design guidelines for a comprehensive environmental graphics and wayfinding sign program for Kuwait University’s new student activities and athletic facilities located at Sabah Al-Salem Kuwait University City campus.
The athletic facilities feature two main competitive and recreational venues—the Grand Stadium, a 5-level, 15,000-seat, outdoor soccer and track and field stadium; and an indoor, 2,000-seat tennis arena, as well as a series of outdoor courts and natural turf playing fields used for both recreation and practice. The student activities center houses the men’s and women’s student unions, and aquatic centers, as well as an information center and inter-campus transportation system located in the center of the campus.
The design guidelines are organized in 2 bound volumes and include a series of pictograms that function as integral, public information elements to the environmental graphics and wayfinding system of sign types. All program elements are displayed in dual language messages—Arabic and English.
