Founded by Jeanne Gang in 1997 and based in Chicago, Studio Gang is a collective of architects, designers, and thinkers producing transformative architecture. Their studio’'s work is based on compelling ideas rather than repetitive formal principles.

Ms. Gang's practice acts as a lab for testing ideas on varying scales: from cities to environments to individual buildings’ unique material properties. This open and collaborative approach enables owners to participate in the design process, making choices as the project develops. Driven by curiosity, intelligence, and radical creativity, Studio Gang's process yields provocative and alluring architecture that responds to its specific place and purpose—exemplified by such recent projects as the Aqua Tower, SOS Children’s Village Community Center, Brick Weave House, and Lincoln Park Zoo South Pond.
The work of Studio Gang has received national and international recognition and has been published and exhibited widely. The Aqua Tower was named the 2009 International Skyscraper of the Year, and the firm has exhibited at the International Venice Biennale, the National Building Museum, and the Art Institute of Chicago. A recent documentary about Aqua and Studio Gang was produced by the Checkerboard Film Foundation as part of their acclaimed Architecture Series.
Jeanne will be speaking in the atrium of building 550 (d.school) at 7PM!
