Signage designed for Team UOW’s entry the Illawarra Flame Australia house in the Solar Decathlon China 2013. Signage was designed to compliment our team’s brochure that was given to visitors upon entry to our house. There were three different signage varieties used throughout the Illawarra Flame House. The long journey panels were situated at the perimeters of the house to provide educational content for those queuing for entry. The stationary stands and rotating columns were incorporated into the landscape and showed the technological features of the house and used relevant diagrams and pictures to further illustrate our concept. Our signage was constructed out of recycled wood – a further extension and integration of the retrofitting concept. All signage used was in both Mandarin and English.
All communications material used concepts unique to the Illawarra Flame house such as it’s ability to transform a typical 1960s retro Australian fibro house into a modern, energy efficient and livable dwelling. The Illawarra Flame house also demonstrated the strength of Wollongong’s resources by the University, TAFE and local community working together. Lastly, the Illawarra Flame tree – a natural icon of the Illawarra region and used in the UOW emblem. For more, please see Team UOW China Brochure.
