Michael Jansen Biography

Michael Jansen is an impassioned architect, urbanist, and entrepreneur, and has founded and led high-growth companies in the U.S. and Asia for more than two decades.

Michael studied architecture at Yale and then Cambridge. In the early ’90s, right after graduation, he flew out to China and started with a major US architectural practice as a twentysomething junior project architect, being thrown on to massive Chinese urban-core regeneration projects that were twenty years too sophisticated for me. Throughout that experience, he learnt the inner workings of the city.
