Jason Kelly Johnson is a founding design partner of Future Cities Lab , an experimental design and research office based in San Francisco, California. Working in collaboration with his partner Nataly Gattegno Ho, Jason has produced a range of award-winning projects exploring the intersections of design with advanced fabrication technologies, robotics, responsive building systems and public space. Future Cities Lab is at the forefront of exploring how advanced technologies, social media and the internet of things will profoundly affect how we live, work, communicate and play in the future. Their approach to design and making, which has been described as “high performance craft”, is also deeply experiential, interactive and materially rich. Future Cities Lab is an interdisciplinary studio employing an adventurous team of designers, architects, technologists, digital craftspeople, urban ecologists and more. Jason is currently an Assistant Professor at the California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco.
