John Ronan is founding principal and lead designer of John Ronan Architects. His abstract yet sensuous work explores materiality and atmosphere. Ronan’s firm has received two AIA Institute National Honor Awards, for the Poetry Foundation and The Gary Comer Youth Center, both in Chicago. In 2010, Princeton Architectural Press published Explorations, a monograph of his work, and a book on the Poetry Foundation by Centerline Press at the University of Texas will be released in 2015. Ronan is currently professor of architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology College of Architecture.
