Contents of campus sign-oriented system design

07.01.2020 22:40

 
 Before designing the sign-oriented system, we will thoroughly analyze and understand the campus's building and environmental conditions, zoning layout, and vehicle traffic flow lines; analyze administrative office buildings, college teaching buildings, public teaching buildings, student apartment buildings, and public venues , The internal departmental structure of buildings such as external communication places, pedestrian traffic flow lines, and so on. Follow the order from outside to inside, from big to small. Through the analysis and investigation of the campus environment, the classification-oriented design of the sign-oriented system is carried out first, followed by the hierarchical design. Can be divided into: indoor and outdoor sign guidance system; by object: car and pedestrian sign guidance system.
 
Indoor signage guidance system
 
1. Floor or wall-mounted floor index card
2. Floor index card
3. Floor number plate
4.Name of each department
5. Nameplate of administrative office
6. Duties of the Administrative Office
7. Class schedule
8. Toilet, water, teacher's lounge, etc.
9. Channel shunt tag
10. Wall-mounted window publicity
11. Celebrity famous sentence display card
12.Public safety signage
13. Prohibition signs
 
Outdoor Sign Guidance System
 
1. Off-school traffic signs
2. School name plate
3. Office building, teaching building, and other building signs
4. School building distribution general floor plan identification plate
5. Standing type shunt sign
6. Standing type publicity column
7. Plant Knowledge Introduction Board
8. Take care of flower grass placards
 
Car sign guidance system
 
The design of the campus car sign guidance system should comply with national traffic sign specifications, and try to use national or international universal sign symbols and colors, which are mainly divided into three levels.
Level 1: University image signs set on both sides of the traffic road outside the university campus, clearly indicating the direction and distance of the school, generally produced and installed by the municipal administration;
Level 2: Main roads and main entrances from north to south. The first-level car guide signs mainly indicate campus roads, main zones and directions.
Level 3: Roads in each zone, etc .; Level 2 car dealer guidance signs indicate the main buildings and units and directions in the zone.
 
 Pedestrian Sign Guidance System
 
The pedestrian and car lanes on campus should be completely separated. The pedestrian and car lane systems should run side by side and extend into the building, and finally reach the basic unit of the place-the room. The pedestrian sign guidance system is the main way for the school to communicate information to the outside world. Its function is not only to identify the existence of various buildings in the school, but also to provide public guidance and advertising functions. It is mainly divided into five levels:
Level 1: Main entrance. There should be campus maps, zoning maps, campus construction memorabilia, and guidance information on the crowded areas and the main entrance of the campus.
Level 2: planned roads and roads within the zone.
Level 3: Instruction signs in front of the building, identifying the internal units of the building and the introduction of the building.
Level 4: Internal identification of the building. Generally includes the general index of the building or the floor plan of each floor, the identification of public service facilities in the building, the entrance and exit signs, etc.
Level 5: Includes identification signs for specific functional rooms in the building and some specific identification signs outdoors, such as doorplates, window cards, facility cards, tree nameplates, grass cards, etc.
 
There are several aspects to the design of school sign navigation system
 
1. The school image must be unified with the guidance system for signage.
2. Consistent with the overall campus image design principles. Establish a guidance system for people flow and traffic flow, which is independent, supplementary and interconnected, and jointly build a school public information guidance system identification plate.
3. Continue the concept of campus planning and design, and unify with the style of campus landscape design.
4. Hierarchical search. Guidance system identification signs should be graded from global to local, from local to specific, with clear, intuitive, and continuous instructions.
5. The content of the signboard should follow the principle of people-oriented and service to others.
6. The materials used for the signs should be compatible with the local climate and human environment.
7. The layout of traffic signs should be reasonable.
8. In line with ergonomic principles. The size, color and text size of the identification plate shall be described in detail from the perspective of ergonomics, and the national standard shall be given as a reference.
9. The shape, specifications, and colors of the traffic guidance system signs conform to road traffic signs and markings.
10. When using symbolic text, it must be strictly in accordance with the standards set by the state, and can also be accompanied by English or other foreign languages, which can meet the needs of international education development.
