New York, USA — Gensler is proud to announce that Jordan Goldstein, Principal and Global Director of Design, was elevated to the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) College of Fellows for 2020.
The IIDA College of Fellows is the highest honour awarded by IIDA to its professional members, recognising designers who have made a significant impact to the industry, to the association, and to shaping the future of design. IIDA Fellows positively influence design through their thought leadership and mentorship, involvement within their communities, and commitment toward molding the next generation of talent.
Goldstein oversees Gensler’s global influence of design innovation and project delivery. Throughout his career, he has led the design of more than 8 million square feet of commercial projects in the U.S. and abroad. A sought-after spokesperson on the future of design both domestically and globally, Jordan has been featured in many prominent design publications.
“For more than 20 years, I have dedicated my career to using the power of design to develop solutions to challenges in our communities and cities around the world,” said Goldstein. “One key to success is surrounding yourself with innovative, inspiring people and ensuring that their voices are heard in the design process. I have found that combination in practice at Gensler and through fellow designers at IIDA. I am honoured to be elevated to this year’s IIDA College of Fellows."
In 2015, the Washington Business Journal named Jordan one of the 25 top innovators in Washington, D.C., and has regularly included him on its list of the 100 most influential leaders in that market. An advocate of helping the next generation of designers prepare for tomorrow, Jordan has frequently taught a course on design at the University of Pennsylvania, where he earned a master's degree in architecture and has been the Kea Professor at the University of Maryland, where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Architecture.
