About the Project
xREZ Art + Science Lab is in its start-up phase. Established by artist-scientist Prof. Ruth West, xREZ is developing a culture of research by envisioning the creative educational experience of the future — a space where students can use the combination of art, science, and technology to solve real-world problems.
How can we combine design and innovation to create the best laboratory space for training the thought leaders of the future?”
Gensler is a global design firm ranked first among the top 100 green design firms, with more than 2,300 active clients worldwide and the company is focused on transformative architecture, brand design, interior design, planning and urban design, product design, and sustainable building around the globe.
Gensler’s clients include 40 out of 50 Fortune 500 companies, and four of the five largest companies in China. But Gensler’s mission also includes assisting worthy start-ups by providing designs free of charge to help them excel when they most need help. In 2014, they chose xREZ.
“We signed on to help xREZ become a reality.” – Ted Watson
Now, their inventive architecture solutions are helping the Lab answer the question: How can we combine design and innovation to create the best laboratory space for training the thought leaders of the future?
Gensler Dallas associates Ted Watson, Emily Shively, and Tim Lavelle have generously given of their time working with students to envision the future culture of the lab and provide innovative solutions.
“We signed on to help xREZ become a reality,” says Gensler’s Ted Watson. “xREZ Lab is doing some pretty unique and cool projects, so it was neat for us to be right there on the cutting edge too, learning about new concepts, new ideas, and how the lab works.”
In the summer of 2015, Gensler delivered renderings for a new design of the xREZ that takes this art + science lab to the next phase of its launch.
“Architecture is a physical manifestation of potential – what our clients can become in the right space,” says Gensler’s Ted Watson
xREZ lab could not be more excited to announce our partnership with Gensler! We’ll be working with the Gensler team to imagine a creative + research + learning environment for the future. Stay tuned for updates! Here’s your first sneak peek!
