Gensler X Groundswell
Featured in Architectural Digest
Gensler’s internship program includes Summer Studio, a design studio in which the internship class works together on a summer long pro bono project. The internship class was broken into four groups of six, with each group designing a different pop up installation to commemorate the opening of Groundswell’s 500th mural.
This intern group celebrated Groundwells’ history by documenting 100 of the organization’s past murals. The group designed a label featuring a mural along with its title, artists, year completed and location in New York City. Labels were placed on paint cans to symbolize the origins of these paintings. On opening day, seeds, plants and soil were provided for the artists and community members to plant inside the designed paint cans to further embody and symbolize the organization’s ethos of planting seeds of change through art.
