Jeffrey Johnson is a co-founding principal of SLAB and the founding director of China Megacities Lab, an experimental research unit at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University, where he also teaches. Research at China Megacities Lab focuses on contemporary issues related to the spatial and social transformation of China’s urban landscape. Current projects include research on post-industrial urban transformation, the exportation and influence of Chinese urbanism and design through China’s global expansion, and China’s large-scale superblock development, the latter included as part of a book Johnson is co-editing provisionally entitled The China Lab Guide to Megablock Urbanisms.
The City Makers in China lecture series is presented by the GSD's MDesS in Real Estate and the Built Environment program and hosted by the GSD Advanced Research Seminar ADV09127: Real Estate and City Making in China.
