Her award-winning practice emphasises research, experimentation and collaboration resulting in a diverse body of work. Projects range from cultural centres, to high rise towers and installations, as described in a new comprehensive monograph, published by Phaidon.

Chapters open with short essays by Gang and are illustrated with sketches, drawings, photographs and renderings.
