Gordon Gill is one of the world’s preeminent exponents of performance-based
architecture. His work, which ranges from the world’s largest buildings to sustainable
communities, is driven by his philosophy that there is a purposeful relationship between
formal design and performance, and that there is a language of performance, which is
the basis of his practice: Form Follows Performance. Gill is a founding partner of the
award-winning firm of  Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, whose work includes the
design of the world’s first net zero-energy skyscraper, the Pearl River Tower, and the world’
s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa (both designed while at SOM Chicago). The firm also
designed the world’s first large-scale positive energy building Masdar Headquarters, and
the world’s tallest tower, Kingdom Tower in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.  Most recently the
design of Astana Expo 2017 and its sustainable legacy community for Astana, Kazakhstan
was developed.  These landmark projects pursue energy independence by harnessing
the power of natural forces on site and striking a balance with their environmental
contexts. Gill’s designs also include performing arts centers, museums, strategic carbon
planning and urban master plans across the globe.

Gill’s work has been published and exhibited widely in the U.S. and internationally and
his designs have repeatedly been recognized by the American Institute of Architects.  In
2009 he was selected as Chicago’s Best Emerging Architect by the Chicago Reader and
in 2013 Gill was elected to The College of Fellows at the American Institute of Architects.
Gordon Gill earned a B.S. in Architecture at Ryerson University, then earned a Master in
Architecture at the University of Texas at Arlington and an additional Master of
Architecture at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard.

This lecture is being presented by The University of Texas at Arlington College of
Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs (CAPPA), in collaboration with The Dallas
Architecture Forum, in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the School of
Architecture.
