Studio Gang Architects plans to build two new residential housing buildings in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago. The first, City Hyde Park, is a residential mixed use building with both affordable and market rate units, and the second is a University of Chicago dormitory. Each building features a cohesive design meant to establish community amongst residences and connect the spaces to the neighborhood. Both projects will be completed in 2016.
In this video from BUILDER's sister site ARCHITECT, Jeanne Gang, FAIA, founder and principal
of Studio Gang Architects and Margaret Cavenagh, AIA, senior director
of interiors at Studio Gang Architects give ARCHITECT a preview of the projects
and describe the thought process behind the designs.
