visual clutter = danger
There is a growing and interesting trend in Europe to completely remove urban traffic signage and regulations. Given Sewanee’s already minimal traffic signage, should we consider following the Hans Monderman model? Perhaps we can extend this design philosophy to reducing administrative and academic ‘signaling’ and prescriptions that are increasingly clogging up some of the most important aspects of the educational endeavor: to foster responsibility, creativity and community. What do you think?
