Mark Lee - Too young to reason, too old to dream
Since its founding in 1998 Johnston Mark Lee’s work has included residential, retail, commercial, hospitality, and institutional projects, and varied in scale from masterplans to contemporary buildings and temporary installations. Having produced notable designs for art galleries and temporary exhibitions, and frequently working as curators, their work has shown a particular focus on the arts, and often involves collaborations beyond those typical to architecture, involving contemporary artists, graphic designers, writers, and photographers. The firm’s key projects include the structurally innovative Hill House in Pacific Palisades, the conjoined boutiques of Mameg and Maison Martin Margiela in Beverly Hills, the nation’s first LEED-certified gas station BP Helios House in Los Angeles, and the sculpted concrete View House in Rosario, Argentina.
