Brooklyn Botanic Garden Mapping

C&G Partners has recently collaborated with the Brooklyn Botanic Garden on a comprehensive orientation, directional wayfinding and mapping system. Occurring over multiple phases, the rollout updates an ad-hoc assortment of placemaking signs, directionals and other elements that had developed over the Garden’s extensive history without a central design directive. The central feature of the program is the Garden’s new map. While stylistically evocative of the lush watercolors that are a Garden tradition, the new map is a fully digital production, able to incorporate future changes in the landscape or nomenclature with a minimum of change. Whether seen physically on the grounds, encountered as a digital installation in the Visitor Center, or used in a future app, the Garden Map will grow and expand along with the Garden for many years to come.
