American Architect Jeanne Gang, FAIA, is the founding principal of Studio Gang, an international architecture and urban design practice headquartered in Chicago, with offices in New York, San Francisco, and Paris. Founded in 1997, her firm has matured into a global powerhouse, with work around the world.
Drawing insight from ecological systems, Jeanne is recognized for a research-based design process that foregrounds the relationships between individuals, communities, and environments. Her analytical, sustainable and creative approach has produced projects across scales and typologies.
These include community centered cultural institutions like Writers Theatre, to public projects that connect citizens with ecology, such as the Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo, and high-rise residential towers that foster community such as Chicago’s Aqua Tower, which when completed in (2010), earned her worldwide renown. Jeanne’s 101 story St. Regis tower in Chicago, (2021), is the world’s tallest designed by a woman.
Ongoing projects include an expansion to the American Museum of Natural History, NYC; University of Chicago’s European hub in Paris; the O’Hare Global Terminal in Chicago; and the MIRA and Mission Rock residential towers in San Francisco.
Intertwined with their built work, Jeanne and the Studio also develop research and related projects such as publications and exhibitions that push design’s ability to create public awareness and give rise to change—a practice they call “actionable idealism.”
