The masterful work of Jeanne Gang has been as welcome a presence in CS as across our city’s skyline.

JEANNE GANG

ARCHITECT. VISIONARY. FOUNDER.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe shaped the face of Chicago, but since his time, no other architect has come close to his claim on the skyline of Chicago—until the ascent of starchitect Jeanne Gang. Her project list is long and impressive: Aqua Tower, Vista Tower, Writers Theatre, Solstice on the Park and the just-awarded global terminal and concourse at O’Hare. And while it takes a talented team at Studio Gang to guide all these projects from concept to occupancy, it’s the MacArthur Fellow at the helm whose vision has created her legacy in concrete, glass, steel and wood.
