Jeanne's lecture will discuss the increasing importance of using design to address world challenges, such as climate change and inequality. To do this, Jeanne proposes an expanded version of practice that broadens the definition of the architectural discipline by employing its skills, tools, and synthetic outlook toward creating projects that make a greater positive impact.
Through a presentation of Studio Gang’s work, Jeanne will summarise how her expanded practice works toward change through projects that harness architecture’s capacity to build stronger relationships between people, their communities, and their environment.
American architect Jeanne Gang is the founder and leader of Studio Gang, an architecture and urban design practice with offices in Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Paris.
