MARKLEE. Johnston, Sharon, Mark Lee. Pap. Barcelona, 2013 Californian architect duo Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee are one of the few studios that, though modest in size, manages to survive in a field dominated by the large American offices. Since being founded in 1998, Johnston Marklee has undertaken small commissions that combine the best of California Modern tradition with European influences and knowledge learned from their academic experiences in various American universities. From their first residential works in California to the projects developed in China, Italy, Spain, or Switzerland, their works are located at the intersection of the spheres of the local and the global, and pay tribute to an interpretation of the modern movement and to the demands of global visibility particular to Los Angeles. This issue of 2G presents the works and projects of Johnston Marklee, along with two essays (one by the Swiss historian and critic Martino Stierli and the other by Robert E. Somol, the current director of the School of Architecture of the University of Chicago) which places the work of this California studio into context within the current Architectural panorama. The final section Nexus includes a text by the architects themselves, "Generic Specificity. Five Points for an Architecture of Approximation", a sort of manifesto in which they clearly explain their position vis a vis the profession. Spanish/English. 176 pp. 97644
