WXY ARCHITECTURE AND NYC & COMPANY PIONEER RADICAL REDESIGN OF THE NYC INFORMATION CENTER
Media hybrid of architecture and interactive mapping software will
dramatically reshape the way NYC visitors and residents navigate the
five boroughs

New York, NY – WXY architecture + urban design, one of New York’s
leading architecture practices, along with NYC & Company—the city’s
official marketing, tourism and partnerships organization—have just
completed the NYC Information Center. The design, in collaboration with
award-winning media design firm Local Projects, is an innovative
re-invention of the way visitors and residents plan their New York City
itineraries. The NYC Information Center is located at 810 Seventh
Avenue (between 52nd and 53rd streets) and officially opened to the
public on January 21, 2009.
“We are immensely pleased with the sleek new design and
state-of-the-art technologies that make up the new NYC Information
Center,” said George Fertitta, CEO, NYC & Company. “The new center
is fitting of New York City and its residents, and will be a model for
visitor information centers around the globe.”
“The invitation by NYC & Company to completely re-conceive the
familiar visitor center experience was a complex challenge,” says WXY
principal architect Claire Weisz. “By working closely with Local
Projects, we were able to integrate their sophisticated technology into
the interior architecture, without impacting the integrity our design”.
WXY has created a new paradigm that eliminates the need for dated
print brochures. Alternatively, users can now place digitized “pucks”
on the ‘Interactive Map Tables’, which trigger the mapping software and
allows them to create custom guidebooks and itineraries of New York
City.
The i-shaped glowing “digital mirrors” that hover above the Smart
Tables are guided by the universal symbol for information – a single i
– and function to draw visitors through the space on an oblique
pathway. The mirrors throw a color-based projection on to a fabric
screen made of Barrisol which responds to the user’s choices based on
the category of activity selected such as dining, entertainment,
lodging, etc.
Once an itinerary is developed, the visitor can then choose to view
their travel plans in three formats. The large video wall, located on
the rear wall of the information center, is comprised of 16 high
definition flat screen monitors that allow visitors to view a dynamic
three-dimensional map of their urban itinerary. By placing the
digitized puck on the screen’s designated pylon, a visitor’s saved
search becomes a dramatic cartographic display of the city from above
travel route mapped out within it.
Visitors can also use the digitized puck-to-pylon method to obtain
their itinerary in hard copy or send themselves an itinerary directly
from the Interactive Map Table via email or text to access from their
Personal Electronic Device. Alternatively, FAQ Information kiosks are
available for simpler searches. Four wall-mounted vertical touch-screen
monitors link users to the company website, nycgo.com, for basic
inquiries such as famous city landmarks and popular restaurants, etc.
Great attention was given to the lighting of the information
center’s interior for which WXY created an ambient, adaptable and
color-saturated experience. Recessed light coves that run the length of
the space infuse the center with a soft, white illumination while the
light emitted by the various media displays brighten the interior
without the use of direct lighting.
