Discover Panorama, the iconic former Jehovah’s Witnesses’ headquarters which Gensler, a global architecture, design, and planning firm, transformed into a dynamic new mixed-use campus located in the heart of the Brooklyn waterfront. This special Insiders tour will be led by Gensler Senior Associate and Technical Director Philip Miller, the tour will highlight the site’s interconnected office and warehouse buildings and explore its industrial architectural details including skybridges, setback terraces, and a “jewel box” rooftop pavilion with views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan. Panorama was developed by Columbia Heights Associates, a joint venture of CIM Group and Brooklyn-based LIVWRK.

The tour will be led by Philip Miller, Senior Associate and Technical Director at Gensler. A registered and LEED-accredited architect, Philip Miller brings a diverse background specializing in all technical aspects of design to his work on commercial office building, mixed use, and planning projects. As a technical director, he is responsible for coordinating projects from start to finish and ensuring that the original design concept is translated and realized throughout project construction and close-out. His commanding experience in producing contract documents, partnered with his ability to maintain a strong design concept through each project, has allowed him to execute several prominent projects for developers in New York including 5 Penn Plaza, 21 Penn Plaza, and Panorama in Brooklyn. Philip holds a Bachelor of Science and Master of Architecture from the University of Milwaukee.
