Is this really gold-standard communication – I think not….
In the last few months, I have spotted these white plaques having been fixed to buildings. As you can see from the photographs, many buildings have multiple plaques identifying the diameter and distance of water pipes– one building on Devonshire Street has nine new white plaques to go with the one yellow Fire Hydrant locator.
With current technology, are these multiple messages absolutely necessary or are they an assault on our senses, a disregard for the public realm, a novel form graffiti? I think the latter.
