Crafting Performance: Studio Gang
Exhibitions at the Center are always FREE to visit!
Jeanne Gang, founder of Studio Gang, is the recipient of our 2017 Louis I. Kahn Memorial Award.
Crafting Performance offers an in-depth look at Studio Gang’s architectural research and design process for Writers Theatre in Glencoe, Illinois. Tracing the parallel trajectories of the history of theater, innovations in timber construction, and the role of theater as a community anchor, Crafting Performance exhibits a combination of physical models, documentary photographs, and research materials to tell the story of the design.
Named ‘the finest piece of theatrical construction to be built in this country in the past decade’ by the Wall Street Journal, the award-winning building ushered in a new era for Writers Theatre when it was completed in 2016.
Join us for the launch of this exhibition with a FREE wine and cheese reception on the evening of Thursday, May 25th, 5:30-7:30pm.
