AD Interviews: Sharon Johnston & Mark Lee

AD Interviews: Sharon Johnston & Mark Lee

Another interview conducted live at the rooftop of The Standard during Postopolis! LA.

We invited Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee (principals at Johnston MarkLee), mostly because I wanted to know more about the practice behind some interesting projects we featured prior to the event: The Hill House, the Sale House, the Mameg + Maison Martin Margiela store and their Ordos 100 villa, along with the View House in Argentina we featured earlier today.

We asked the usual set of questions, while the sun was going down in LA, and Sharon/Mark answers turned into a interesting conversation. I like Mark’s answer to “What should be the role of architects in contemporary society”: “Architects should be superstars – and solve all problems of the world“. Part of the talk on Social Networking was about Ordos 100 and the network behind this “architectural orgy”.

Mark Lee will be a speaker at CIP Talks 2009.

Feedback and comments are welcome.
