The new guide book developed for street navigation includes the colors, typefaces, recommendations for the use of pictograms, and layout principles, for house plates as well for city signs.
As is the case with all the elements of urban design code (street clocks for example), the Studio offered different approaches for building plates in pedestrian areas and the historic center, which is where there are the most tourist routes and the aesthetic requirements are particularly high, and a different approach for other areas of the city.

The rivalry between the South Korean tech giants Samsung and LG isn’t just played out over sales of smartphones and curved television screens. Both companies are building new American headquarters, Samsung in north San Jose, Calif.; LG in Englewood Cliffs, N.J. And on this score, the contest isn’t close. Buildings are corporate symbols and advertisements, after all. Samsung comes across as a good citizen here; LG as a lousy neighbor.
Samsung’s 1.1-million-square-foot North American offices, designed by NBBJ and to be finished next year, include a boxy, sleek glass behemoth that vaguely harks back to office parks of the 1970s. It’s divided into three horizontal bands, like a layer cake, each with landscaped decks on top. The continuous bands can seem like a square riff on Norman Foster’s doughnut-shaped headquarters for Apple, both with big, curving atriums; here, the concept is based on traditional Korean courtyard architecture.
The building links to the city’s light-rail system and fits into San Jose’s street grid. It’s eco-friendly, with de rigueur green roof and green walls, and urban-minded, by Silicon Valley standards, with public gardens, plazas and a cafe near a parking garage that is partly camouflaged behind solar panels.
