Here is a "Kinder Vorsicht" sign which was meant to signal drivers to slow down for children in the area, being blocked by a street pole and is placed on the outskirts of the main road.

This is the stairway in the U-bahn station Roßauer Lände leading up to a bridge. 

To prevent cyclists from cycling down the ramp at a fast pace and potentially endangering the pedestrians, they placed the two ramps on different sides of the stairs, divided also by a plastic pole. 

The choice architecture is effective in the sense that cyclists will more likely decide to get off their bike on the stairs, although it makes it difficult for everyone with a bicycle (or a pram) to go upstairs as the space to change from one side of the stairs to another very small.

Nudge at CEU

Here is a very subtle nudge that all of us pass everyday. CEU displays a very prominent picture of our philanthropic founder George Soros in a ceremonial setting and other accomplished students of the CEU community. I suppose that this could nudge students to strive to work hard, be part of the arduous and academically strong student community of CEU, create a good-working University community, and be reminded of the societal goals of CEU, including the open society George Soros stands for. Furthermore, the picture seems to display a graduation ceremony motivating students to look forward and work hard to achieving their degree. Perhaps it might also motivate us subconsciously to become as rich as Soros ;)

Elevator buttons

The elevator buttons in the picture suggest that the order of the levels from the bottom to top is KEM123 or K1E2M3 based on the general placement of the buttons. However, the actual order of the levels in the house is KE123M. Which can not be inferred from the order of the buttons.
