The Gensler Research Institute
The Gensler Research Institute is a network of researchers with a singular focus: developing a deeper understanding of the connection between design, business, and the human experience. Through a combination of research grants and external partnerships, we seek insights that will help solve the world's most pressing challenges. We are committed to unlocking new solutions and strategies that will define the future of design.
Unique among design firms, Gensler works with a cross-section of the world’s economy. This access provides us insights into the issues driving change across markets. To help businesses navigate the impact of industry trends on the built environment, our publications and thought leadership explore how design turns client challenges into competitive advantages.
Cultivating a culture of design
Breakthrough ideas emerge from understanding the needs of the people and communities we serve. Delivering design that is informed, purposeful, innovative, and compelling means we encourage our people — the industry’s top talent — to explore new solutions to age-old problems. We reward collaboration and intellectual curiosity — striving to leverage design’s ability to elevate the everyday.
