Jeanne Gang’s Marble Curtain

WASHINGTON – The National Building Museum announced on Thursday that Chicago’s Studio Gang, founded by architect Jeanne Gang, will design its 2017 Summer Block Party installation.

“We are delighted to embark on a new collaboration with Studio Gang over the next year” said Chase W. Rynd, executive director of the National Building Museum in a statement. “With their creativity and impeccable design credentials, they are poised to reimagine the possibilities of this series.”

“It’s great to return to the National Building Museum, where our Marble Curtain was such an important early project for Studio Gang, one that informed our thinking about material innovation and research,” said Jeanne Gang, founding principal of Studio Gang. “We are looking forward to building on the legacy and energy of the summer series, in the historic space of the Museum’s Great Hall.”

From the release: “Each Summer Block Party installation presents innovative, interactive experiences that temporarily transform the Museum’s historic home and challenge visitor perceptions of the built environment. Although the concept for the installation is currently in development, Studio Gang intends to engage this spirit of creative experimentation that has defined the series’ success.

“Details of Studio Gang’s design for the National Building Museum’s Summer Block Party will be announced in early 2017. The installation is slated to open to the public on July 4 and will remain on view until Labor Day 2017. www.studiogang.com”
