Bevin Savage-Yamazaki

With a passion for all aspects of culture and the arts, Bevin leads Gensler’s Civic & Culture practice. In her 20 years of experience, she has worked with a range of cultural and not-for-profit institutions, including the New York Public Library, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, Dia:Beacon, the Grace Institute, and the Ford Foundation. She has published a white paper on the future of museums and continues her research by looking at the relationship between museums and their constituencies, with a focus on the visitor experience.

In 2017, Bevin sat on a panel at SXSW called “Lo-Fi Museum Moments in a Digital World,” where she explored how to balance digital technology in the museum experience. She has lectured at the New Museum, Pratt Institute, MAAM, and ACSA, and led panel discussions alongside many of the most renowned names in the arts. Additionally, she has written about the relationship between art and architecture for both the Gensler blog and the New Museum’s blog series.

Over the past three years, Bevin has served as a panelist on New York State’s Council of the Arts (NYSCA), Architecture + Design, Cultural Facilities and Museums’ grant review panels.
