Environmental Graphics for IBM Santa Teresa Laboratory

Linda Groat, Graphics Project Manager
“The use of color-coding at the architectural scale is perhaps nowhere more dramatically exhibited than in this complex of buildings in the Santa Teresa, California, foothills, where whole exterior walls are identified in glowing shades of magenta, red, red-orange, orange, yellow, green, teal, and blue.

“The jury was impressed with the daring and successful use of color from the largest to the smallest scale in an orientation and directional system that they felt worked extremely well. From the air, the vivid courtyard walls strongly identify the building complex in the midst of wild landscape.”
