John Lee is a registered Architect working at Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects and is a co-founder of LeeLabs, a product design and fabrication studio whose approach to products explores the synthesis of fabrication processes and new modes of architectural production. Previously, John worked as a Senior Design Technology Specialist at CASE, providing project support and BIM implementation to significant AEC clients with a focus on developing solutions that integrate an intelligent and efficient workflow process. Earning a Master of Architecture and Master of Science in the Built Environment from Arizona State University, he is particularly interested in environmentally responsive design and has presented his research on urban heat island effect at the American Solar Energy Society National Solar Conference. John is an Adjunct Professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation where he teaches courses on parametric tools as well as climatic design.
Brian currently works at WeWork as a Senior Researcher in the Construction Optimization group focusing on the potential of computational workflows for design to fabrication of building systems. His research provides insight for internal design, construction, and development teams to make data driven decisions. Earning a Master of Architecture from Columbia University GSAPP, Brian’s work and research focus upon seeking out new territories for design through emerging technologies in architecture and related fields. Brian is also a co-founder of LeeLabs, a product design and fabrication studio whose approach to products explores the synthesis of fabrication processes and new modes of architectural production. Brian is an Adjunct Professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation where he teaches a course on interoperability and parametric workflows.
