The Studio engages projects of many scales and typologies, using design as a medium to connect people socially, experientially, and intellectually. A sustainability ethos is central to the practice, coupled with a methodology defined by research and experimentation, including collaborations with a wide range of disciplines both inside and outside the traditional design field.
Studio Gang is one of seven shortlisted practices for the RCA’s Battersea South competition. Jeanne Gang is a MacArthur Fellow and was awarded Architectural Review’s Woman Architect of the Year in 2016. The practice was awarded the Institute Honor Award, AIA Awards in 2016.
