JOHN LEANO is interested in an overtly subversive production of cultural questions. Deceptive practice, magic, myth and the fantastic form the core of his research, explored through speculative operations in architecture, design, art and publishing. It is his conviction that architecture is a multi-disciplinary, multi-scalar, multi-media operation aimed at cultural production and not simply a service for the provision of shelter nor investment, but for the provision of possible or alternative futures. He is open to cross-disciplinary collaborations.

He is currently helping CLUAA with the Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism 2017.
