Looking Up: A Series with Armstrong World Industries

Listen or watch this three-episode podcast series on Gensler Design Exchange called Looking Up; focused on redefining resilient spaces, clean air solutions in a post-COVID world, the Armstrong Living Lab, and much more.

Redefining Resilient Spaces

Now more than ever, we’re focused on the experience of humans in space. The pandemic has taught us how the natural world can bring the global economy to its knees — but also how it can unite us around a common purpose and mission. In this way, 2020 was a wake-up call to how our changing climate has the potential to do the same. In the second episode of our “Looking Up” series with Armstrong World Industries, Katie Mesia, Southeast Region Design Resilience Leader and Gensler Executive Climate Council member, moderates a conversation between Helen Sahi, Director of Sustainability at Armstrong, Mark Hershey, Senior Vice President of Sustainability at Armstrong, and Gregory Plavcan, Sustainability Consulting Leader at Gensler, about how our two organizations are charting the course toward a more sustainable, resilient future — for ourselves and for our clients.
