In 2008, architect Jeanne Gang, who heads up Chicago’s Studio Gang, told Metropolis magazine: “Architecture can really transform your life.”

It certainly has had an impact on hers. The talented innovator of Aqua Tower has been widely recognized for her groundbreaking thinking about form and materials. And in September 2011, Gang was named a MacArthur Foundation Fellow, a prestigious distinction bestowed on “talented individuals who have shown extraordinary originality and dedication in their creative pursuits.”

The MacArthur Foundation recognized Gang for “challenging the aesthetic and technical possibilities of the art form” and for “setting a new industry standard through her effective synthesis of conventional materials, striking composition, and ecologically sustainable technology.”
