Making Books Now: WORKac in Conversation with Johnston Marklee

Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee speak with Amale Andraos in this first of six conversations recorded live at the conference Making Books Now on September 15, 2017. The conference was co-organized by Columbia GSAPP and the Chicago Architecture Biennial on the occasion of the Biennial’s opening at the Chicago Cultural Center, and was hosted by GSAPP’s Director of Publications, James Graham.

Amale Andraos, co-founder of WORKac with Dan Wood, and Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, co-founders of JohnstonMarklee, speak with one another about their respective books, We’ll Get There When We Cross That Bridge (Monacelli, 2017), and House is a House is a House is a House is a House (Birkhäuser, 2016). Andraos is Dean of Columbia GSAPP, and Johnston and Lee served as curators of the Chicago Architecture Biennial.

“A book is a slow medium, and architecture is a slow medium. Culture is fast, but architecture is slow. … It’s important to take advantage of that slowness.”
—Mark Lee
