Matthew Johnson is faculty at the University of Houston Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design.
Johnson, together with Jason Logan, runs a Houston-based architectural practice called LOJO: Logan and Johnson Architecture. The award-winning firm was founded in 2011 as a research office at the intersection of architecture, urbanism, and landscape. LOJO regards architecture as a social and ecological practice that is at once speculative and practical—dedicated both to understanding twenty-first century urban conditions and to expanding architecture’s role within those conditions. Johnson is also the author of numerous essays on contemporary urbanism and architecture.
