Gensler is a global architecture, design, and strategic planning consultancy with offices in five continents. With over 5,000 professionals networked across 46 locations, we serve our clients by combining localized expertise with global perspective wherever new opportunities arise.     Art Gensler founded our firm in 1965. An architect, he is widely credited with elevating the practice of interior design to professional standing. We now partner with our clients on some 2,500 projects every year in virtually every industry and deliver projects at multiple scales - from planning and building entire cities to designing a task light for an individual’s desk. Gensler combines specialized depth of knowledge with a wide breadth of industry sector coverage. To serve the myriad needs of our clients, we have developed 31 specialized practice areas to deliver specific building and project types on a global basis. Through Gensler’s practice area network, clients receive specific expertise when and where they need it, whether it’s a "just-in-time" need or a critical strategic effort. Many of Gensler’s clients call upon the depth of one practice area that is most relevant to their business, while others benefit from the breadth of talent and knowledge in multiple practices. Gensler opened its first Texas office in 1972 in Houston. The Dallas office followed in 1997 and the Austin office in 2007. The three Texas offices form Gensler’s SouthCentral region consisting of over 600 professionals.
