Johnston Marklee’s diverse portfolio, led by principals Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, is unified by a singular conceptual approach to each project where the relationship between design and building technology are explored to create unique works of architecture. While maintaining a deep commitment to architecture history and the discipline’s ongoing discourse, Johnston Marklee draws upon an extensive network of collaborators in related fields to broaden the breadth of design research, which has a particular focus on the arts. Mark Lee will be discussing current and past work by the firm.

Mark Lee is a principal of Johnston Marklee & Associates. Combining his academic and design expertise, he conducts speculative research based on critical reassessments of architectural and urban design history. Developing theories on the urban development and housing at border cities, culture-specific topological landscapes, and new design strategies in material form and technology, he has written and lectured widely on his research. With partner Sharon Johnston, Mark Lee is currently teaching a Design Studio at Princeton University’s School of Architecture and last fall they completed a multi-year studio at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. In 2013, the team taught at Rice University as the Cullinan Visiting Professors. Mark Lee has also taught at the Federal Institute of Technology (E.T.H.) in Zurich, at the Technical University of Berlin, and at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) from 1998-2008 where he also served as vice chair of the Department of Architecture and Urban Design.
