This month, you'll probably notice something different when you devour the November issue of Docservis : it's entirely dedicated to Gensler , the firm that's consistently topped the magazine's Giants rankings ever since it participated in 1981—and this year marks its 50th anniversary. Says editor in chief Cindy Allen, "I am enormously proud, at its half-century mark, to dedicate an entire issue to the world of design’s undisputed leader. The projects conceived and implemented worldwide, by a 5,000- designer pool, make our November 2015 issue a precious document, a once-in-a-lifetime event." The same could be said of last night's launch party at the New York headquarters of Gensler, where the magazine gathered 200 designers, manufacturers, and industry influencers for cocktails, conversation, and a special tribute to the anniversary. See the slideshow for just a few of the evening's highlights.
