SGA to Design New Writers' Theatre Building
Studio Gang Chosen from an International Field to Design a New Performing Arts Facility in Glencoe, IL
Studio Gang has been hired by Writers' Theatre to design its new facility in downtown Glencoe, Illinois, on Chicago's North Shore. Now in its 19th season, the nationally-recognized, award-winning company currently performs in two venues, and its search committee (comprised of artists, board members, and staff) has chosen SGA to design its first permanent home.
"We are confident that working with Studio Gang is the right match for the organization and for our community,” said Writers' Theatre Artistic Director Michael Halberstam. “Jeanne has a vision of architecture that is derived from her own equivalent of the word and artist: the material and the environment. It is my belief that Studio Gang offers the opportunity for people to arrive encountering a world class piece of architecture and leave having experienced a world class evening of theatre.”
