The latest exhibition from the Department of Architecture and Design offers a rare opportunity to see an award-winning architecture firm at work. Building: Inside Studio Gang Architects takes you behind the scenes of the Chicago-based design group led by MacArthur “genius” Jeanne Gang. Made in collaboration with co-curators Zoë Ryan and Karen Kice, this custom-made installation provides unique insight into SGA’s creative process—from research materials to full-scale mock-ups—demonstrating the firm’s commitment to open-minded experimentation and problem solving. Watch the video above to hear what being an architect means to Jeanne Gang.
