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
Exact time and location on Stanford Campus TBA.
