Gensler and Rockwell Group Provide Innovative Outdoor Dining Solutions
Alone/Together restaurant concept by Gensler
A product of the monthlong Global Design Charrette, its mission
to harness firm-wide creativity and showcase solutions that go beyond everyday project work to address community pain points, the two-person module is about bridging citizens and getting them back to dining together, safely distanced.
DineOut NYC by Rockwell Group
What began last spring as a pro-bono, firm-initiated pilot project to provide six restaurants with an innovative modular outdoor-dining kit-of-parts to help jump-start business has expanded to configurations for entire blocks, such as Mott between Mosco and Worth Streets, resulting in the creation of 550 additional alfresco seats in Harlem, Park Slope, Staten Island, South Bronx, Chinatown, Jackson Heights, and Elmhurst.
