Jeanne Gang's TED Talk

Jeanne Gang: Buildings that blend nature and city

A skyscraper that channels the breeze ... a building that creates community around a hearth ... Jeanne Gang uses architecture to build relationships. In this engaging tour of her work, Gang invites us into buildings large and small, from a surprising local community center to a landmark Chicago skyscraper.

Jeanne Gang finds ways to connect things that aren't naturally cohesive at first glance. At the Architecture Biennale in Chicago, her hometown, she paired cops and kids in a space playing basketball. Her new Ted talk expands on that theme.
