Entro Receives Three Awards From Chicago Athenaeum

January 27, 2019


Each year, The Chicago Athenaeum presents the Good Design awards for the most innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic designs produced around the world. We are pleased to announce that this year The Chicago Athenaeum has awarded us with three Good Design awards for our environmental graphic design program at the Enbridge Centre Parkade, Casey House and the Bahá'í Temple of South America.

The architectural and engineering design of the Enbridge Centre Parkade answered many issues through better lighting, finishes and clear sight lines to the tower shuttle elevators. Entro responded by creating a thematic approach to wayfinding that would positively enliven the space and provide for better orientation. The concept is a celebration of the car itself – by creating a gallery of classic and contemporary cars in a space for cars.

Casey House is the world’s only independent specialized healthcare facility for HIV/AIDS. An architectural expansion by Hariri Pontarini Architects added 58,000 square feet and extended the feeling of home and warmth from the original Victorian mansion. As part of this expansion, Entro developed an exterior identification pylon, and supported the interior designers from IBI Group with the interior wayfinding signage and donor recognition.

The Bahá'í Temple of South America is a worship site in Chile that is intended to serve all, irrespective of background, religion, gender or social standing. Hariri Pontarini Architects enlisted Entro to design the wayfinding, regulatory, and identification signage for the temple path, entrance wall, and visitor centre.
