Cal Poly yak tityu tityu (YTT, formally Student Housing South)

Nestled on California’s central coast, Cal Poly’s new residential community for 1,475 first-year university students consists of seven three-to five-story residence hall buildings and an adjacent four-level parking structure. The new complex connects students both to each other and to the adjacent residential community. A deep connection to place comes from a partnership with the local Northern Chumash tribe, yak titʸu titʸu yak tiłhini, to provide direction for creating unique experiential graphics for each of the residence halls.

Northwestern University Common Spaces

In 2016, Northwestern University asked the Gensler team how they could systematically upgrade and unify their diverse interior common spaces. Although they are some of the most highly trafficked spaces on the campus and often at the forefront of prospective student and faculty tours, these spaces tend to function as leftover spaces. This strategic process covered 2 million square feet of space, 110 buildings and both an urban downtown campus and historic Evanston campus.

Boy Scout Scott Visitor Center

Merit Award 2017
Boy Scout Scott Visitor Center Square

The Scott Visitor Center at the Boy Scout Summit Reserve in the mountains of West Virginia is the point of entry to the 10,000-acre high adventure camp—a veritable Mecca for Scouts. The architecture of the building itself, by Lake|Flato architects, reached the perfect balance between the rugged elegance of old lodges and camp buildings and something more contemporary feeling–expressed in one way by an undulating roofline supported by hand-hewn tree trunks.
