USC Architectural Guild Annual Dinner

Honoring Mark Lee & Kat Taylor

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Vibiana, Downtown LA

 

 

For the first time, the USC Architectural Guild is pleased to announce that the Annual Dinner will honor two distinguished individuals. USC Architecture alumnus, Mark Lee, has been selected as the recipient of the 2018 Distinguished Alumni Award. Philanthropist Kat Taylor has been selected as the recipient of the 2018 Distinguished Leadership Award, an inaugural honor that will be presented alongside the annual Distinguished Alumni Award.   

 

Lee recently was appointed chair of the department of architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design, effective July 1, 2018. He has taught at Harvard GSD since 2013 and was named professor in practice of architecture, an appointment that will also take effect July 1.

 

Lee is a founder and partner of Johnston Marklee, an award-winning Los Angeles-based architecture firm recognized nationally and internationally with over 30 major awards. A book on the work of the firm, entitled “HOUSE IS A HOUSE IS A HOUSE IS A HOUSE IS A HOUSE,” was published by Birkhauser in 2016. This followed a monograph on the firm’s work, published in 2014 by 2G. Projects undertaken by Johnston Marklee are diverse in scale and type, spanning seven countries throughout North and South America, Europe and Asia. Recent projects include the Menil Drawing Institute on the campus of the Menil Collection, scheduled to open in 2018; a renovation of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, completed in September 2017; and the new UCLA Graduate Art Studios campus in Culver City, which recently broke ground. The firm’s work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Menil Collection in Houston, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Architecture Museum of TU Munich. 

 

In addition to his new appointment at Harvard, Lee has taught at Princeton University, the University of California, Los Angeles, the Technical University of Berlin and ETH Zurich. He has held the Cullinan Chair at Rice University and the Frank Gehry International Chair at the University of Toronto. Together with partner Sharon Johnston, Lee was the Artistic Director for the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial. He received his B.Arch from USC in 1991 and his second architectural degree [M. Arch II] at the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD).

 

Taylor works in service of restoring social justice and environmental well-being and is active in a variety of social enterprises, public benefit and philanthropic ventures on the West Coast. Currently, she serves as co-founder and CEO of Beneficial State Bank, a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and Certified B Corporation whose mission is to bring beneficial banking to low-income communities in an economically and environmentally sustainable manner. Founded in 2007 by Taylor and her husband, Tom Steyer, in Oakland, California, Beneficial State Bank has merged with four other mission-aligned banks and loaned out over $560 million to more than 460 borrowers creating positive change in their communities. The bank’s revolutionary ownership, the majority of the economic rights held by a nonprofit permanently governed in the public interest and private foundations, mandates that any distributed profit be invested in the low-income communities it serves and the environment upon which we all depend.

 

Taylor is also a founding director of TomKat Ranch Educational Foundation (TKREF), dedicated to inspiring a sustainable food system through ranching, training, tours, research and school food and garden programs. TKREF owns the social enterprise LeftCoast GrassFed, humanely raising cattle and other livestock for the benefit of people and the planet.
