Come to Forager Tasting Room & Eatery to learn about and experience the elements of architecture and design with the design professionals from Gensler at Content Magazine’s next Content LAB: “Dine & Design.” In teams, guests will be challenged to create a dining space suitable for their “client.” There will be different themes and challenges in each space to be solved. Once the dining areas are constructed, guests will enjoy a four-course meal as they pass through each of the four spaces, taking in the environments that were created. Table discussions will include the elements of design, the emotional impact of the environment, and whether the teams came through for their clients.

Following dinner, there will be entertainment, a raffle, and an optional portfolio review led by Gensler and Content Magazine staff.

Environments will be left on display at Forager Tasting Room & Eatery for the public to view through March 28th.
