Jeanne Gang        

President & Founder of Studio Gang Architects

Jeanne Gang, FAIA, is the founding principal and partner of Studio Gang, an international architecture and urban design practice headquartered in Chicago. Known for an inquisitive, forward-looking approach to design that unfolds new technical and material possibilities and expands the active role of designers in society, she creates striking places that connect people with each other, their communities, and the environment.

Gang’s approach has produced award-winning projects across scales and typologies, from cultural and community buildings such as the Chicago River Boathouses, Writers Theatre, and Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership, to structurally dynamic towers like Aqua, Solar Carve (40 Tenth Ave), and MIRA. Ongoing work includes major cultural and civic projects throughout the Americas and Europe, such as the Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation at the American Museum of Natural History in New York; a new United States Embassy in Brasília; the University of Chicago’s European hub for study and research in Paris; and a new Global Terminal for O’Hare International Airport in Chicago.

Intertwined with built work, Gang and the Studio also develop research, publications, and exhibitions that push design’s ability to create public awareness and give rise to change—a practice Gang calls “actionable idealism.” A monograph of her Studio’s work, Studio Gang: Architecture, was published last year by Phaidon.

A MacArthur Fellow and a Professor in Practice at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Gang has been honored with the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award in Architecture and been named one of the most influential people in the world by TIME magazine.
