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 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.
