MacArthur Fellow and 2013 National Design Award Winner Jeanne Gang is the founder of Studio Gang Architects, a Chicago-based collective of architects, designers, and thinkers practicing internationally. Gang uses architecture as a medium of active response to contemporary issues and their impact on human experience. Each project resonates with its specific site and culture while addressing larger global themes such as urbanization, climate, and sustainability. Honored and published widely, Studio Gang's work has been exhibited at the Venice Architecture Biennale and museums across the nation.

Join Jeanne Gang as she speaks about her process and the inspiration behind the studio's unique vision with Caroline Baumann, Director of Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum.
