Lecture cosponsored by Epic Metals
Gordon Gill is founding partner of Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture in Chicago. Their work emphasizes a holistic approach to performance-based design and achieving energy independence through the harnessing of natural forces on site, exemplifying Gill’s philosophy that architecture must strike a balance with its global environmental context. Recent projects include Pearl River Tower (with SOM), the world’s first net zero-energy skyscraper and the world’s first large-scale positive energy building, Masdar Headquarters.
