This conversation with the architect Jeanne Gang is an opportunity to explore the relationship and distance between architecture and the city but also between architecture and the planet in its natural and living dimension.
Jeanne Gang first presents the St. Regis skyscraper that is being completed and then the design of a park and a pavilion that proposes a new relationship with nature that promotes biodiversity.
This walk in Chicago highlights the distance that exists between the practice of architecture and urban planning in the face of the global climatic and social emergencies that drive us to reinvent the urban making.
