Transforming Places into Experiences

Edwin Schlossberg, ESI Design, an NBBJ studio

An internationally recognized pioneer in experience design and audience engagement, Edwin Schlossberg launched his career in 1977 with the design of one of the world’s first interactive museums, the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Since then, he has been at the forefront of design and technological innovation, creating imaginative and unparalleled public experiences that bring audiences together.

Under Schlossberg’s leadership, ESI Design, an NBBJ studio, has created groundbreaking corporate and retail spaces, sales and innovation centers, museums, digital media installations and multi-player game environments for an array of companies, brands and cultural institutions.

Schlossberg has also developed innovative knowledge-sharing networks, communications platforms and gaming platforms. By integrating cutting-edge technology, digital media, and visual and physical design, Schlossberg and his multidisciplinary teams have designed immersive and interactive environments that help audiences and customers engage and collaborate in deeper, more meaningful ways.

Schlossberg holds a Ph.D. in Science and Literature from Columbia University. Singled out as “a leader in interactive design” by Wired magazine, he has authored 11 books, including Interactive Excellence: Defining and Developing New Standards for the Twenty-first Century, and numerous articles. His artwork has appeared in several solo and group exhibitions and can be found in numerous museums and private collections.
