Current Chicago Tribune Architecture Critic Cheryl Kent gives Building: Inside Studio Gang Architects a rave review, citing the "optimism" and "sense of joy" that accompanies its work.

"Each of the dozen projects in the show," she writes, "demonstrates the firm's willingness to address the most challenging problems of our day, pressing against constraint to make each job undertaken more responsible, socially and environmentally. Absent the sense of head-banging helplessness many of us feel when the subject of global warming comes up, for example, these architects believe that small efforts matter, that, one after another, little solutions can add up to something substantial."
