Jeanne Gang

DeeDee and Herb Glimcher Lecture

The Wexner Center’s annual program of presenting thoughts from the world’s leading artists, architects, and designers offers this fascinating talk by internationally renowned architect and MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang.

Gang is the founding principal of Studio Gang, an architecture and urban design practice headquartered in Chicago with offices in New York, San Francisco, and Paris. A pioneer, she has been celebrated for expanding beyond architecture’s conventional boundaries to foreground relationships between individuals, communities, and the environment.

Drawing insight from ecological systems, Gang’s analytical and collaborative approach has produced some of today's most compelling structures, including the Aqua Tower in Chicago, Kalamazoo College’s Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership in Michigan, and Writers Theatre in Glencoe, Illinois. She is currently designing major cultural and civic projects throughout the Americas and Europe, including the Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation at the American Museum of Natural History in New York; the new United States Embassy in Brasília, Brazil; and the Global Terminal and Global Concourse at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago.
