Gensler Firm Tour
We will see amazing 360 views of the east bay from our office and Gensler will point out some of their projects that we can see from their office. We will talk about the different studios that they host in the office (Interior Workplace, Retail and Core/Shell) and see how projects organize their materials, models and inspiration imagery.
Gensler has a model shop which they will show us as well as interesting design elements they have included in our office, such as the changes they are making to respond to their return to office, so you won’t want to miss it!
