Losing Myself


Irish Pavilion at Venice Biennale 2016

We were honoured to have been approached by Níall McLaughlin and his team to design the website and exhibition graphics for the Irish Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2016, themed around spatial cognition of people with dementia.

Attempting to encourage not only the expected target group of architecture and design professionals, but also demetia sufferers themselves to use the site, we developed a navigation as simple to use as possible. The icons used can be recalled from long term memory and the colour scheme is based on 1950s colours with a reduced contrast. Most importantly, the site is constructed in such a way no ‘error’ can be made – every click yields a positive result.
