Jeanne Gang at MAS Context's 2020 Spring Talks

Jeanne Gang and her Harvard GSD studio volunteered with All Hands and Hearts to gather belongings and sort recyclable debris in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, March 2018.

On March 17, Studio Gang will host Climate Adaptation as part of MAS Context’s 2020 Spring Talks.

"Studio Gang uses design as a medium to connect people to each other, to their communities, and to the environment. The Studio’s founder, Jeanne Gang, is also a Professor in Practice at the Harvard GSD where her research and teaching focus on resiliency and reuse. In 2018, Jeanne and her studio joined the non-profit organization All Hearts and Hands in their rebuilding efforts in the U.S. Virgin Islands after the devastating impacts of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The studio met with local partners and surveyed storm-damaged sites to develop design responses that re-establish and strengthen critical community services.

During this event, architectural historian Elizabeth Blasius, architect Jeanne Gang, and photographer Virginia Hanusik will present their ongoing work and discuss other aspects of climate change as it relates to our built environment, our adaptation to these changes, and the long-term effects that it has in our communities."
