Join the Center for Architecture and Design for their 32nd Louis I. Kahn Memorial Award + Talk honoring MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang, FAIA, architect of the Aqua Tower in Chicago, the current expansion to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, and the next United States Embassy in Brasilia, Brazil.

Jeanne Gang, FAIA, is the founding principal of Studio Gang, an architecture and urbanism practice based in Chicago and New York. Gang works across scales and typologies to test how design can strengthen relationships between individuals, communities, and environments. Her interdisciplinary and research-driven approach has produced projects from multi-acre urban parks to super-tall towers. A recipient of the 2013 Cooper Hewitt National Design Award in Architecture, Jeanne was named the 2016 Architect of the Year by the Architectural Review. Her work with Studio Gang has been honored and exhibited widely, including at the Venice Architecture Biennale, MoMA, Chicago Architecture Biennial, and Miami Art Basel.. She has most recently taught at Columbia, Rice, and the GSD, where her studios have reimagined urban police stations, aquariums, and ecological infrastructure for the twenty-first century.

This annual event raises funds to support the Charter High School for Architecture + Design, the first school of its kind in the nation founded in 1999 as a legacy project of AIA Philadelphia.
