The Design of a Wayfinding System for Korolev City
Design
(Master’s programme)

The purpose of the study is to identify the main features of the design of tourist navigation. Try to identify the algorithms for working with the territory and understand the main features of reporting information using such means as pictograms, maps, information signs, etc.

The growth of cities is accompanied by their spatial and functional complication, and hence the complication of life processes, which leads to the problem of orientation in space (experts point out human disorientation in the city as a mass phenomenon) and makes the task of ensuring the navigation process. Constant changes in the urban environment require periodic project rethinking and updating orientation tools.

Properly designed navigation system affects the perception of the city. The more comfortable it is for a person to navigate in an urban environment, the safer he will feel and the less discomfort he will experience. Making the city convenient and understandable for the movement of large masses of people, regardless of their goals and destination, is a primary task in designing urban navigation. The humanization of urban space has a positive effect on the perception of the city as a whole, allowing it to be made more attractive for tourists and permanent residents.

This study examines the experience of designing urban navigation in cities such as Bristol (project Bristol Legible City), London (project London Legible City), Bath (project Bath Public Realm & Movement Strategy), New York (project WalkNYC) and Moscow ( project development of tourist navigation of the city)

The analysis highlighted the main features of the development of navigation systems, contributing to the timely reporting of necessary information to the end user - a pedestrian. This primarily concerns such important components of navigation systems as maps, pictograms, design features of navigation media and typography.
