More About the Author
Architect and MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang leads Studio Gang Architects, a Chicago-based collective of architects, designers, and thinkers. Spanning a wide variety of building types and sizes, her works are connected by their engagement with pressing contemporary issues and are informed by cross-field investigations in materials, technology, and the natural and social sciences.
Reveal, her first volume on Studio Gang's work, gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at her studio and the creative process that shapes her architecture. Reverse Effect, her second book, is an advocacy piece exploring possibilities for the Chicago River's transformation. Building: Inside Studio Gang Architects, developed in conjunction with her firm's 2012-13 solo exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago, takes a look at a dozen of her firm's most recent projects and the ideas that connect them.
