American Red Cross of Greater New York

New York, New York

The American Red Cross of Greater New York is the organization's largest U.S. chapter, serving more than nine million people. As the Red Cross celebrated its centennial, it renovated a former laundry building on the West Side with the goal of accommodating two types of work: daily work and disaster response. Gensler worked with the Red Cross to create flexible areas that function daily as teaming and amenity spaces and can be easily adapted to operate as fully functioning emergency response centers.
