Two different projects for the City of Kingston, through the engineering form GPI, were developed to educate the public about the green infrastructure that was being used in the City. The first sign illustrates the Bioswale Process. It contains a 3D cross section rendering of one of the city’s streets with a bioswale and a series of illustrations of the vegetation being used in the planting beds (four trees and 14 plants).
The second sign explains the porous pavement process utilized in the parking lot reconstruction. The main image includes a 3D cross section that includes the permeable pavement, a bioretention bed, an automobile, and pedestrians. An inset of the parking lot shows where the cross-section rendering is located.
Working from the engineers’ blueprints and guidance from the engineers who designed them, Steve Cook illustrated all the renderings included on both panels. The signs are also bilingual with text presented in English and Spanish. Designs follow the Interpretive Sign Development Guidance of the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation Green Innovation Grant Guidelines.
