One of the foremost architects working today, Jeanne Gang is widely recognized for her innovative and independent practice. Studio Gang Architects confronts pressing contemporary issues and seeks to answer questions that exist locally but resound globally. The firm’s work is exemplified by recent projects such as the Aqua Tower in Chicago, an 82-story high-rise, which critic Paul Goldberger described as “reclaim[ing] the notion that thrilling and beautiful form can still emerge out of the realm of the practical.”

With the studio poised to contribute a new set of buildings to the global skyline, “Building” examines its most current work, twelve built and unbuilt projects that address four major issues facing contemporary architecture: its relationship to nature, the development of dense urban areas, the integration of the ideas of community members, and architecture and performance. Featuring essays, interviews, sketches, and drawings—many previously unpublished—this beautifully illustrated book provides an insider's look at a cutting-edge architectural practice.

Jeanne Gang, a MacArthur Fellow, is founder of Studio Gang Architects. Her previous book on the studio's projects and working process is “Reveal”. Zoë Ryan is John H. Bryan Chair and Curator of Architecture and Design at the Art Institute of Chicago. Her previous books include “Bertrand Goldberg: Architecture of Invention”.
