Brian Johnson

British architect Brian Johnson started his career in London before moving to Dubai in 1975, where he would come to establish himself as one of the industry’s biggest power houses. In 1991, Johnson established the Dubai headquarters Godwin Austen Johnson, a firm that has undeniably become one of the most powerful design and architecture firms in the region. With decades of work throughout the Middle East under his belt, Johnson can be credited with merging modernism with Islamic design, influencing countless designers who would soon follow suit. His most recognisable projects include Bab Al Shams, Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club and One & Only Arabian Court.
