Hilary Lewis

The Architecture of Philip Johnson

Philip Johnson's imprint is indelibly stamped on cities across America: from his AT&T Building (now Sony Plaza) in New York City, to the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California to Transco Tower (now Williams Tower) in Houston, Johnson's distinctive designs and widespread influence have made him the undisputed dean of twentieth-century architecture.

With a forward by Johnson himself, and essay by his biographer Hilary Lewis, and nearly 400 vivid color and black-and-white photographs accompanied by detailed building descriptions presented in chronological order, this is the book on Philip Johnson's architecture. This oversize volume will appeal to anyone interested in architecture today.
