Setting the scene for experiments
Navigating the city
A rock music museum, companies, apartments, artists’ workshops, theatres, and events. All of it part of the Musicon project. An old factory area, with a total floor area of 250.000 square metres was going to convert Roskilde into a hub of experience economy. Musicon wanted LOOP Associates to develop the signage design – making it easy for people to navigate the city.
Bursting experience economy
LOOP Associates developed the signage design with an anchor in the identity of Musicon identity; large-scaled, twisted, untraditional in its expression, and a creative and vigorous part of Roskilde. Thus signalling the first visible changes from old factory area to bursting experience economy.
A lot of individuals, project organisations, and companies were housed at Musicon. The signage therefore also propagates knowledge about current activities as well as navigation. Part of the signage system consists of mobile units, updated regularly for changing events.
A new neighbourhood
Musicon has manifested itself as the flagship of architecture and events at an international standard with more than 100,000 visitors 90 events annually.
When Musicon is complete, it will be a neighbourhood with 2000 homes and workplaces, all finding their way without getting lost.
