Jeanne Gang, principal and founder of Chicago-based Studio/Gang/Architects, gives a free talk Wednesday afternoon about her latest project: a $21 million, LEED-certified media center for Columbia College to be located at 16th and State. The lecture starts at 12:15 PM and takes place in the John Buck Lecture Hall Gallery of the Chicago Architecture Foundation (224 S. Michigan, 312-922-3432). Seating is limited so you’re encouraged to arrive early–and bring a bagged lunch.
