In addition to our signature year-long certificate program, Archeworks offers seminars, workshops and public programs that aim to broaden a community of practice by bringing together diverse groups of individuals seeking greater meaning and impact to their work. In keeping with our philosophy of experiential learning, facilitated peer-to-peer sessions foster imaginative thinking and critical dialogue; generate proposals, prototypes and working models; and develop new models of cross-disciplinary practice and civic innovation.

FALL 2014








2012–13 LECTURES

Gordon Gill, AIA Partner
Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture

September 19, 2007 @ 6pm

“Global Environmental Contextualism”

Gordon Gill directs design teams in the creation of award-winning architecture across the globe. His work emphasizes a holistic approach to design that integrates all project disciplines. The results are performance based designs that work symbiotically with their natural surroundings- contributing to the sustainability of cities, augmenting the built landscape and creating an optimal user experience.

Gordon’s work includes the design of civic facilities, large-scale mixed-use developments, city-wide master plans and the world’s first net Zero-Energy skyscraper, Pearl River Tower. This landmark project achieves energy independence through the harnessing of natural forces at the building’s site, exemplifying Gordon’s philosophy that architecture must strike a balance with its global environmental context.

His work has been recognized by the American Institute of Architects, Architectural Record and has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. Gordon has lectured widely and in the fall of 2007 will begin teaching a design studio at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Prior to founding Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture LLP in 2006, Gordon was an Associate Partner at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP and a Director of Design for VOA Associates.
