"Studio Gang’s 14-story mass timber ‘Arbor’ emulates the spirit of working in a tree fort with a minimal carbon footprint...The tactile wood structure becomes a terraced framework for vertical ravines and green space, allowing the optimal amount of light, air and shade into and out of the building. meanwhile, green roofs, green walls, and vegetated trellises serve to filter the air, reduce the urban heat island effect, and reduce energy use for active cooling."

Architectural Record — "One Hundred by Studio Gang"

Architectural Record — "One Hundred by Studio Gang"

"One Hundred is full of inflections: between downtown and Forest Park, between the city’s past and its future. It serves as a bold new landmark for the Central West End that still subtly responds to the context through its massing, geometry, and materiality. The tower adds to the rich and layered history of its neighborhood while embodying an optimistic outlook for the city of St. Louis."

Globe and Mail — "The Architourist"

'Ms. Gang has spoken publicly on how even very tall towers can encourage friendly communities beyond elevator small talk. At Studio Gang’s 82-storey Aqua in Chicago, for example, rippling balconies create sightlines that allow folks to chat with neighbours above and below. At One Delisle, large balconies and smaller ones will create a similar effect, as will the expansive “Ravine Terrace.”'

Oculus — "Roads, Not Walls"

Oculus, the publication of AIANY, includes Polis Station as an example of how designers might think about ways for spaces of justice to support development rather than deprivation.

"Part of Gang’s vision was simply reconsidering who these buildings are meant to serve. Police stations can be made smaller, more approachable, and less fortress-like, which creates rapport and trust between citizens and police. Adding basketball courts, WiFi, mental health clinics, and community meeting spaces can help build reliance and legitimacy, and ideally stop someone from entering the justice system entirely."
