Canyon Flow by Studio Gang (now at Soho House Chicago)

October 2017

Clutch Gallery is pleased to present "Canyon Flow" by Studio Gang, in collaboration with Chicago Design Museum. Members of Soho House Chicago may borrow the 25-square-inch purse gallery overnight. It can be booked through the club's reception desk.

The dynamic qualities of nature, and the striking forms shaped by natural processes, are an endless source of inspiration for our architecture. From the "vertical topography" of our Aqua Tower in Chicago, with its undulated balconies, to the dramatic, canyon-like spaces of our Gilder Center at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, we are interested in how design can learn from nature to bring people together for meaningful shared experience. The liquid material of concrete often provides the perfect medium for this kind of architectural innovation. Canyon Flow embraces both the physical power of nature's forces and the wonder they inspire, as well as embodying the immersive currents of the creative flow we seek. —Jeanne Gang, Studio Gang
