Studio Gang is a leading architecture practice whose design work addresses buildings, landscapes and cities. Founded by Jeanne Gang in 1997, the office has grown to include 35 full-time staff collaborating on national and international projects.
The studio acts as a lab for testing ideas on every scale, from cities to material properties. This sensibility is demonstrated by projects such as the Marble Curtain and SOS Community Center, which visibly engage with the distinct natures of marble and concrete, respectively, and the Aqua Tower in Chicago, which reconsiders the tall building as a site-specific structure. With a process that begins with research and exploration, the studio has produced a growing body of work that responds to its specific place and purpose.
Studio Gang has received national and international recognition for its innovative and sustainable designs, and was most recently honored with an award of High Commendation for the SOS Community Center at the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona.
Studio AR+D Architects is an innovative Architecture+Design+Construction firm working nationally as one office from two locations: Palm Springs and Los Angeles, California.

The work of Studio Puisto Architects builds on the ecological, social and financial aspects of sustainability – combined with esthetics and functionality. Studio Puisto specializes in natural, sustainable choices of material and energy sources. Studio Puisto Architects is located in Helsinki, Finland.
The name of the firm expresses an interest we have in exploring the boundaries that architecture operates within - the larger boundless environment suggested by the CITY, and the intense focused craftsmanship of the object, the DESK. The focus of the STUDIO, architecture, exists in between these scales. We choose to be diverse in project types and scales. We believe the ideas, issues, and even construction techniques in these different project types inform each other resulting in work that is better designed and better built.
