Unravelling the notorious multi-level Barbican highwalks
Maynard was commissioned by the City of London to implement the Legible London system along a selection of routes including around the Barbican Centre, the Museum of London and St. Paul’s underground station.
We identified routes based on legibility, comfort, appeal, accessibility and safety, and updated the system without compromising on its world-class standard, making the city an easier place to navigate on foot.
We are excited to be collaborating again this semester with RMIT University in running a design studio entitled ‘Playscape’. Throughout the semester, the Industrial Design students will consider the concept of ‘play’ within an urban context, to design a product that caters to the inner child in us all. Kate Pleban and Ante Ljubas will guide the students through the design process – encouraging them to think critically about how we can weave play, interaction, delight and surprise into our daily lives.

Maynard announced as part of team to deliver $5.4 billion Cross River Rail project
Cross River Rail is Queensland’s highest priority infrastructure investment, which will enable the extra network capacity required to operate higher frequency public transport that connects with other services and supports other network growth projects. This will help ease the pressure of road congestion, making Brisbane and the whole of South East Queensland even more liveable.
The Tunnel, Stations and Development (TSD) public private partnership will be delivered by the PULSE consortium, which is led by CIMIC Group companies, Pacific Partnerships, CPB Contractors, and UGL with international partners DIF, BAM, Ghella, HASSELL and Maynard.
