An interesting post to the Information Architecture Institute listserv asks: “When we move from two-dimensional virtual spaces to three-dimensional spaces, are we still information architects, or are we just architects? Is there a difference? When we move from rich interfaces in the virtual world to rich interfaces in the physical world, what’s that?”
We at TheContentWrangler.com are not sure what the answers to these thought-provoking questions are, but we’re really intrigued by the recent work of Lynne Faulk, an information architect/experience designer who has morphed herself into a professional Wayfinder. The Seattle Post Intelligencer features an article about Lynne that documents both her work designing a new-and-improved sign system for the downtown Seattle public library and the common sense improvements she made to help citizens use the city’s pay-to-park kiosks.
