Last week, HD’s editorial team met with the venerable editors for our annual Guest Editor issue in November: George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg, who have graciously agreed to lend their expertise culled from decades in the hospitality industry to shape the issue’s content. They join the ranks of past guest editors such as AvroKO (November 2013), Clodaugh (October 2012), and David Rockwell (October 2011).
We sat down with Yabu and Pushelberg (fresh from an interview about their design for the soon-to-open Park Hyatt New York) at their SoHo office to discuss the ins and outs of the issue—what we need them to contribute, what we’ll help with (no, they don’t have to write all the editorial themselves), and to start brainstorming their theme for the issue.
The excitement was palpable, and we can’t wait to see what Yabu and Pushelberg come up with for the magazine—who they interview, what projects will be featured, and what insights we’ll gain from the esteemed pair. Looking forward to November!
