With a foreword by Johnson himself, an essay by his biographer Hilary Lewis, and nearly 400 color and black-and-white photographs accompanied by detailed building descriptions presented in chronological order, this is the book on Philip Johnson's architecture. The photographs were taken by Richard Payne, one of Johnson's personal photographers, who set out to document all extant buildings designed by this most celebrated visionary.
Johnson has produced a life's work full of surprises and groundbreaking ideas that have shaped the way we live, work, and play, from the sculpture garden at New York's Museum of Modern Art to his famous Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut. This oversized volume will appeal to anyone interested in architecture of the twentieth century.
