Tour the NYC Visitor Information Center's award-winning "information space," highlighting a new approach to visitor information distribution, integrating media design and architecture to meet visitors at any level of engagement. Lighting systems, display armatures and media enclosures were developed along with new digital media interfaces resulting in a sophisticated yet fun environment within a visually striking interior. The space allows visitors to engage in itinerary planning and city exploration in a highly personal way. Led by architect Claire Weisz, AIA, of WXY Architecture + Urban Design.
