China Megacities Lab

CHINA LAB is both a research laboratory and a design studio at Columbia University founded by Jeffrey Johnson in 2008. 

CHINA LAB asks questions of and develops investigations inspired by China’s rapid urbanization and spatial production.

CHINA LAB conducts research and proposes design solutions for diverse projects throughout China, ranging in scale from single structures to entire cities.

CHINA LAB supports and enables a new species of architects and urban designers, with the capacity to operate and maneuver at an ever-accelerating pace, with maximum flexibility.
