Guide in New York

October 7th 2011


The Pavement’s homeless city guide is being displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMa) as part of the Talk to Me exhibition.

The guide, which was designed by Emily Read and Chen Hsu, consists of a simple series of symbols to help the homeless community interact. The code, which is reproduced in The Pavement monthly, has been described as “a new, informal avenue of communication.”

The ‘Talk to Me: Design and the Communication between People and Objects’ exhibition will be open at the famous museum until 7 November.
