Philip Johnson: A Visual Biography
AIA Gold Medal | Philip Johnson, 1978
A spectacular visual biography of one of the most celebrated architects and cultural icons of the twentieth century.
With his elegant suits and trademark round black glasses, Philip Johnson - a witty, wealthy, and well-connected architect - was for many years the most powerful figure in the society and politics of his profession. This impressively illustrated book traces his seven decades of larger-than-life influence, innovation, and controversy in the realm of architecture and beyond. Hundreds of images and documents, many published here for the first time, trace the remarkable life and career of a true legend.
