Jeanne Gang, founder and principal architect of Studio Gang, is known for her inquisitive, forward-looking approach to design. In this episode, Gang discusses some of the studio’s major projects, including New York City’s Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation and the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts (AMFA).
