Chicago-based Studio Gang Architects is a lab for testing ideas that traverse scale. Founder Jeanne Gang discusses how the Studio explores the full technology and material spectrums and creates projects that treat cities as interconnected, ecological systems such as Chicago’s newest skyscraper, the Aqua Tower, and Columbia College Chicago’s Media Production Center, a cutting-edge film production and teaching facility.
