The Yards is 14+ block neighborhood in Washington, D.C. located between Nationals Park and the Navy Yards with high density residential and commercial uses, and a network of historic building and public parks. RSM was tasked with connecting the 42-acre site with a wayfinding system that combined the existing neighborhood logo with local destinations. RSM Design worked with teams at Forest City Realty and later Brookfield to develop a design that fit into the neighborhood architecture and fostered pedestrian circulation throughout the space. Sign activated key alleyways and links to restaurants along the Anacostia River waterfront. The design brings the traditional architectural elements of brick and painted steel into a set of vertical signs that consolidate wayfinding and neighborhood identity.
