About Edwin Schlossberg, Principal at ESI Design, an NBBJ studio

An internationally recognized multi-hyphenate pioneer in audience engagement, Schlossberg launched his design career in 1977 with the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, one of the world’s first interactive museums, and has been operating at the forefront of innovative experiential design ever since. Under his leadership, ESI Design 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, including Sony, eBay, WarnerMedia, PNC Bank, Barclays, Beacon Capital Partners, Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, and the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the U.S. Senate.

Schlossberg holds a Ph.D. in Science and Literature from Columbia University and is an accomplished fine artist, educator and author as well. His artwork has been celebrated and shown since the 1960s and can be found in numerous museums and private collections. Sharing his knowledge has been important to Schlossberg; he has taught and lectured around the world, from the School of Visual Arts (New York) to Keio University (Tokyo) and has written many articles and books, including “Interactive Excellence: Defining and Developing New Standards for the Twenty-first Century.”

In 2004, Schlossberg won the National Arts Club Medal of Honor. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation and in 2011 was appointed by President Obama to serve a four-year term on the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts.
