Jeanne Gang (FAIA, LEED AP) leads Studio Gang Architects, a practice generating innovative and award-winning works of architecture. Through exploration and research early in the design process, Ms. Gang’s work has staked out new creative territory in materials, technology and sustainability. Her projects have been published and exhibited widely, including at the International Venice Biennale, the National Building Museum, and the Art Institute of Chicago.

Ms. Gang’s most recent projects include the Columbia College Media Production Center, the Ford Calumet Environmental Center targeting LEED Platinum, and the Aqua Tower, an 82-story high-rise in downtown Chicago that was named the Emporis 2009 Skyscraper of the Year.

Ms. Gang’s practice includes a continuing commitment to architectural education. In addition to serving as an adjunct professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology since 1998, she was a visiting professor at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design in 2004, the 2005 Louis I.
