” Greetings from Gensler architecture and design! We hope you’re enjoying your new school building. We worked long and hard with DaVinci management team to designed the new facility that you moved into last year!
 
We are proud to have worked with DaVinci as a progressive school and we’re looking to learn more about modern education. We’re conducting a post-occupancy research survey to gather insights about how you are using the different spaces in DaVinci and what you think about them.
