We’ve talked about Gensler before. The thing is that the american giants have so many projects, it would be a shame not to share some more with you. So here we go…
After the city identified Al Maryah Island as its new financial center, Gensler created a master plan and comprehensive design guidelines for this 122-hectare development. To convey its status as a financial and strategic healthcare center, Abu Dhabi sought new standards in the project’s planning and architectural design. The master plan aimed to create a human-scale environment that would maximize connectivity for workers and visitors, while enhancing the opportunity to enjoy a work-life balance.
With its frame-like form, 2000 Avenue of the Stars pays homage to the iconic Century Plaza Towers while maintaining a strong identity on the Los Angeles skyline. Gensler redesigned the existing 30-year-old facility to provide a mix of uses and meet modern standards of energy efficiency. The complex contains 750,000 square feet of office space as well as retail, restaurant, cultural amenities and subterranean parking. Thanks to Gensler’s sustainable approach, the project is one of the most energy efficient buildings in the city.
Singapore is seeking to care for one of Asia’s fastest-aging populations; and the Community Hospital @ Yishun aims to serve it with the best in “slow medicine,” which harnesses technology without being driven by it. Collaborating with HDR, Gensler’s design competition solution envisioned a building with spatial organization connecting patient need to hospital services. State-of-the-art medicine would be complemented by universal access to experience-rich amenities, educational resources and gardens. Multiple sustainable solutions would be employed, including a naturally ventilated skin that draws in prevailing winds, daylight, and the sounds and smells of the region.
Amazing projects, right? But what else could we expect from giants such as Gensler, one of the world’s best.
