Basílica de la Sagrada Familia

When the Sagrada Familia went from being a work in progress and construction project in full swing, to a place of worship that would be visited by churchgoers and tourists in huge numbers, it presented us with a difficult challenge that we saw as an opportunity.

This new use of the space meant that the way of communicating information to its thousands of users would need to change radically. The existing temporary signage, with different materials and categories specific to the refurbishments of the preceding years, was transformed into a more distinguished, more durable and refined range, with updated information that would help transition into this new phase with a clear understanding of the change of use.

The graphic design was done by Estudi Virgili, whilst Signes undertook the industrial design, the wayfinding requirement analysis, the production and assembly.

Signage boards were produced for multimedia information, as well as furniture for mock-ups of the basilica, solving all user needs (access points, toilets, visits to the towers, shop, museum, rooms, etc.).

The units were designed so that they can be correctly displayed, regardless of how many users the basilica has.

The stands are robust, sturdy and self-supporting, due to the impracticality of fixing them to the pavement or to the walls.

The manufacturing materials used are iroko wood, conveniently protected for the base supports, and painted aluminium, labelled with digital vinyl print for the sections where the information is to appear.
