A smaller version of a monolith, a totem is a free-standing architectural structure built on poles, however it is both shorter and thinner than a monolith.
Totems are often used to assist visitors with location recognition within a site, unlike a monolith, which is typically used out the front of a site as a key site identifier. Commonly, the use of a totem is integrated with wayfinding and creates a more unique way of directing users around a site. Unlike standard wayfinding signage, a totem can include additional elements of illumination and technology such as LED screens.
