Signterior: Smart interior design makes navigating bizarre buildings more intuitive


Christened the Signterior by its creator, Shanghai-based architect Nobuhiro Nakamura of A-Asterisk, the name is a blend of the words "signage" and "interior." All of the floors, walls and ceilings on every level within the Chinese structure are painted with helpful markers denoting anything from where the elevator is to various shops. Different colored lines also help people know if they are going they right way, acting as a trail to different parts of the Signterior building.

The Signterior takes up over 47,000 square feet and it is being planned as an office building combined with a shopping mall. It should be finished by September of this year.
