Gang to speak on ‘ma­te­ri­al­ity’

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - PROFILES -

Jeanne Gang will present a lec­ture at 5 p.m. Mon­day in Ken and Linda Sue Shollmier Hall, Room 250 of Vol Walker Hall, on the Univer­sity of Ar­kan­sas cam­pus, as part of the Fay Jones School of Ar­chi­tec­ture and De­sign lec­ture se­ries.

Gang is the found­ing prin­ci­pal of Stu­dio Gang, an ar­chi­tec­ture and ur­ban­ism prac­tice with of­fices in Chicago and New York. She works across scales and ty­polo­gies to test how de­sign can strengthen re­la­tion­ships be­tween in­di­vid­u­als, com­mu­ni­ties and en­vi­ron­ments.

In her lec­ture, ti­tled “Ma­te­ri­als That Con­nect,” she will dis­cuss her re­cent and up­com­ing projects that use ma­te­ri­al­ity to con­nect cities, peo­ple and the en­vi­ron­ment.

This is the Charles Thomp­son Memo­rial Lec­ture, spon­sored by Cromwell Ar­chi­tects En­gi­neers. The pub­lic is in­vited to at­tend, and ad­mis­sion is free, with lim­ited seat­ing.

In­for­ma­tion: (479) 5754704 or fayjones.uark.edu.
