Description/Abstract

Sharon Johnston, AIA & Mark Lee are the principal founders of Johnston MarkLee Associates. Sharon currently teaches at UCLA's Department of Architecture and Urban Design and has directed visiting critics studios throughout the country. Mark Lee is an integral faculty member at UCLA and is currently the Vice Chair.

Founded in 1998, Los Angeles-based Johnston MarkLee & Associates designs and develops distinvtive architectural environments that are responsive to the variable intermix of specific conditions of site, program and economics. Recent projects include an exhibition design at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art entitled nano, numerous award-winning houses that are responsive to contemporary issues and, yet, perpetuate historical disciplinary practices regarding housing issues; and more recently major large-scale commissions in China.

Additional Information
