Chicago is famous for its role in fostering modern architecture. Now Jeanne Gang, founder of Studio Gang Architects, is giving the epithet "Chicago School" a new meaning. Her recently completed 82-story Aqua residential tower is already an icon of the Chicago skyline and has been universally hailed as a masterwork for the young firm. Reveal presents an in-depth look at the firm's unique work and working process through drawings, diagrams, sketches, and photographs that illuminate the evolution of each of the book's eight featured projects, both public and private, and ranging in size from exhibition to high-rise.

"A mix of individual projects, models, and points of inspiration and offers a peek inside the process of a very exciting group of architects indeed." --DWELL
"What happens when a brilliant architect decides to construct a book rather than a building? You get Reveal , an idiosyncratic collection of dazzling images and insightful text that shows the hidden influence behind each of her firms projects." -- Chicago magazine
"This year, Chicago's Jeanne Gang was the first architect since 1999 to win a $500,000 MacArthur Fellowship. Her firm's bracing monograph shows why: Standard building presentations are layered with unexpected narrative threads and format twists, such as a fold-out history of a glacial boulder that was jack-hammered to make way for Gang's Aqua, 82 stories of undulating concrete near Lake Michigan." -- San Francisco Chronicle
"Beautifully produced and designed... a sneak-peek into the mind of Gang and her team. " --Print
"Anything but formulaic... thoroughly compiled, intelligently written, and beautifully presented; I'm hoping Book Two isn't too far off." --Archidose.org
