A multi-phased project was completed for Rotary International at its headquarters in Evanston, IL. This collaborative effort between Xibitz, Peter Hyde Design, and Angle Park creates a narrative that speaks to all visitors with intentionality.
Upon walking up to the building, visitors observe vertical messages developed on vinyl displaying the core values of Rotary. As you enter the building, guests are greeted through the Rotary In Action Portal, a curved, interactive that introduces visitors to the space. The largest component of this project features a large fabricated sphere, representing the Earth. The sphere is best experienced from the interior, with wall graphics that display the people Rotary has impacted through it’s work. The sphere, fabricated from unique materials such as bamboo veneer on flat surfaces and a brushed chem-metal applied to narrower faces. The intended message with the design is meant to inspire visitors to do good in the world.
