Conde Nast Names Architect

Conde Nast has announced Gensler as the architectural firm that will design the publishing house's new headquarters downtown. “They want really designed efficient, effective space — really flexible space,” Robin Klehr Avia, Gensler's managing principal at Gensler, told WWD. “They talked about the concept of flexibility and being a space where communication can happen, where people can work together as teams.” No word yet on whether CN will commission another firm to create the new cafeteria. The company will abandon its iconic Frank Gehry-designed dining hall in its move. [WWD]
