    Jeanne Gang Speaker Biography

    MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang is Founder and Principal of Studio Gang Architects, an award-winning architecture and urban design practice based in Chicago and New York. Internationally recognized for her innovative use of materials and environmentally sensitive approach, Jeanne explores the role of design in revitalizing cities. Through projects ranging in scale from community anchors and cultural institutions to tall mixed-use buildings and urban planning, she engages pressing contemporary issues and their impact on human experience. Employing this approach, Jeanne has produced some of today’s most compelling architecture, including the Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership, the WMS Boathouse at Clark Park, the Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo, and Aqua Tower.

    Jeanne is currently engaged in major projects throughout North America, including the expansion of the American Museum of Natural History in New York; high-rise towers in San Francisco, Miami, New York, and Chicago; an ecological planning project on an island in the Caribbean; a strategic plan for the National Aquarium in Baltimore; the Fire Rescue 2 training facility in Brooklyn, New York; and the Campus North Residence Hall at the University of Chicago.

    Jeanne’s work has been honored and exhibited widely, including at the International Venice Biennale, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago. A distinguished graduate of the Harvard GSD, she has taught at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Rice, and IIT, where her studios have focused on cities, ecologies, and materials. Reveal, her first volume on Studio Gang’s work and process, was published in 2011, followed by Reverse Effect: Renewing Chicago’s Waterways, which envisions a radically greener future for the Chicago River.

    Jeanne Gang Keynote Topics

    A skyscraper that channels the breeze ... a building that creates community around a hearth ... Jeanne Gang uses architecture to build relationships. In this engaging tour of her work, Gang invites us into buildings large and small, from a surprising local community center to a landmark Chicago skyscraper. "Through architecture, we can do much more than create buildings," she says. "We can help steady this planet we all share."
