Denari Architects, Marmol Radziner, and Johnston Marklee. Join for one, or purchase a Spotlight on L.A. Design series ticket.

Founding principals Sharon Johnston, AIA, and Mark Lee discuss their firm's innovative buildings, which explore the relationship between design and building technologies. The resulting wholly original work includes the UCLA Graduate Art Studios, Poggio Golo Winery, and The Menil Drawing Institute.
