A Primer on Jeanne Gang

A Primer on Jeanne Gang

The Dallas Architecture Forum welcomes Jeanne Gang to its lecture series this Thursday night at the Magnolia Theatre. Gang has received lots of notice for her recent addition to the Chicago skyline, Aqua.  It is Gang's first skyscraper and the tallest building designed by a woman-owned architectural firm. Here are a couple of recent articles to prep you for her talk.

First up, here's a bit of info on some of her earlier projects in and around Chicago.

And here's Blair Kamin's review of Aqua.  He calls it " an design that is as fresh conceptually as it is visually" and praises the building's "sensuous, undulating balconies."
