Studio Gang Architects

 

Founded by MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang in 1997, Studio Gang Architects is a Chicago-based collective of architects, designers, and thinkers whose work engages pressing contemporary issues and their impact on human experience.

Honored with the 2013 National Design Award for Architecture from the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, the Studio acts as a laboratory—testing ideas on various scales, from cities and environments to material and physical properties. Cross-field research, collaboration, and iterative experimentation using both digital and analog technologies are integral to the Studio’s process. Each project is designed to resonate with its specific site and culture while addressing global themes such as reuse and sustainability. This innovative approach has resulted in works such as Aqua Tower, whose façade encourages building community in the vertical dimension; Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo, where fourteen acres of biodiverse habitat are designed to double as storm water infrastructure and engaging public space; and WMS Boathouse at Clark Park, which creates a new access point along the Chicago River. In addition to creating transformative architecture, Studio Gang is dedicated to employing the tools, methods, and visionary capability of design to catalyze positive change through public engagement and advocacy.
