For ADP – Aeróports de Paris – France, CRA created a Universally Accessible Pedestrian Wayfinding System conveyed in French, English, and Spanish.

Charles de Gaulle Airport-Terminal 2C was designated for the prototype. The goal, to direct Passengers with Reduced Mobility
from a sidewalk to the desired reception, was achieved with a multisensory system which can be integrated into new construction or easily retrofitted into existing facilities.

CRA conceived, researched and designed three 2-sided Retrospective Exhibits, which animate the Pedestrian Concourse and depict the history of Roxbury over three centuries.

The massive slanted glass slabs are incorporated into the reception desks.

Tactile floor plans raised from the glass surface introduce the main circulation throughout the exhibition complex.

Directory listings with Braille are on changeable metal inserts.
