"It is with deep sadness that I share with you that Art Gensler, a beacon in our industry and a true legend in the design world, has passed away. He left us on Monday, at the age of 85, after an 18-month battle with lung disease.⁣⁣⁣⁠⁠⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁠⁠⁣ Our own Interior Design Hall of Fame member, Art was that innate leader and consummate entrepreneur who was needed to establish a small practice and then irrepressibly turn it into one of the largest and most admired design firms on the planet, Gensler (@gensler_design). In the course of his 65 years in the company wheelhouse, he painstakingly wove an ethos that was characterized by a strong belief in collaboration, support of design education and career advancement, respect for individuals, dedication to clients, and endorsement of sustainable design. All these values created the winning engine that propelled the firm to global prominence, and continues to do so long after Art's retirement.⁣⁣⁣⁠⁠⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁠⁠⁣ I was privileged to know Art well, and I have spent memorable times with him over the years that I'll forever cherish. Most importantly, as editors, my team and I have followed his signal achievements from almost day one, and continue to feature and award outstanding Gensler projects the world over. Above you can swipe through some of his favorite works: SFO, Consolidated Freightways, MGM CityCenter, and Shanghai Tower.⁣⁣⁣⁠⁠⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁠⁠⁣ We feel very fortunate to have recorded his and the company history in the pages of our magazine, and we hope to have contributed some of the means allowing his legacy to live on forever.⁣⁣⁣⁠⁠⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁠⁠⁣ Please join me in paying tribute to this true design icon."⁣⁣⁠⁠⁣ ⁣⁣⁠⁠⁣ - Cindy Allen, Editor in Chief @thecindygram
