Managing partner, Godwin Austen Johnson

Brian Johnson has maintained an almost constant presence throughout the GCC since 1975, and he is currently rounding out his 28th year with the Dubai-based architecture and design firm Godwin Austen Johnson (GAJ). Opening the GAJ headquarters in Dubai in 1991, Johnson played a role in modernising traditional architecture across the UAE, with his work comprising some of the country’s most recognisable buildings, such as the Dubai Creek Golf Club, Bab Al Shams and the Arabian Court at the One&Only Royal Mirage. With his leadership, GAJ is looking forward to a number of projects over the coming year including Muscat Bay and a DoubleTree in Riyadh.
