Jeanne Gang Lecture: Studio Gang Architects: Recent Work

MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang is founder and principal of Studio Gang Architects, a Chicago-based collective of architects, designers, and thinkers whose projects address pressing contemporary issues. Known for rooting her designs in both architectural form and idea-driven content, Gang's work has been honored and exhibited widely, most notably at the Venice Biennale, MoMA, and the National Building Museum. Her recent projects include the design of Northerly Island Park, a 91-acre former airfield on Chicago's lakefront (now under construction); the Solar Carve Tower, a commercial high-rise that abuts the High Line park in Manhattan; and the Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo, an educational pavilion and landscape that also function as storm water infrastructure.

A graduate of the Harvard GSD, Gang has taught at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and the Illinois Institute of Technology, where her studios have focused on cities, ecologies, materials, and technologies. Reveal, her first volume on Studio Gang's work and working process, was released in 2011 by Princeton Architectural Press. The first solo exhibition of her firm's work, Building: Inside Studio Gang Architects, opened at the Art Institute of Chicago in September 2012.
