WHY? The cultural heritage of Roses is wide and diverse and it's composed by a group of cultural goods, both material and immaterial, that must be highlighted and explained in a suitable form without provoking impacts in the amazing landscape of the area.
WHAT? The project for the sign system of Roses is based in the research, the analysis and the evaluation of the heritage and the landscape of Roses. The result is an innovative sign system that has a goal to educate the view to be conscious of the natural and cultural values of the territory.
HOW? We based the sign system in two kinds of elements: observer artifacts, that help to focus the senses in certain places or intangible elements of the territory, and QR signs -a radical innovation for a public sign system in 2009-, that connects the physical world with the information contained in the Rosespedia, a local wikipedia full of resources of the territory. The result is a sign system that connects the beautiful landscape and heritage of Roses with interactive information, sounds, anecdotes, videos, etc. to make the experience of visiting Roses even better.
