Jeanne Gang

Founder and Principal at Studio Gang


American architect and MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang is the founding principal of Studio Gang. Jeanne is recognized internationally for her bold and functional designs that incorporate ecologically friendly technologies in a wide range of striking structures. She has been sought out by numerous organizations to engage her creative approach for mission-oriented architecture and design. Employing this approach, Jeanne and Studio Gang have produced some of today’s most compelling design work, 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, New York, and Chicago; a strategic plan for the National Aquarium in Baltimore; the Fire Rescue 2 training facility in Brooklyn, New York; the Campus North Residence Hall at the University of Chicago; and City Hyde Park in Chicago. Her work has been honored and exhibited widely, including at the International Venice Biennale, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago.

"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. A 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.
