Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0821227882, Hardcover)

Philip Johnson's imprint is indelibly stamped on cities across America and his influence can be felt worldwide. His distinctive designs and widespread influence have made him one of the foremost names of 20th-century architecture. His life's work encompasses ideas that have shaped the way we live, work and play, from the sculpture garden at the Museum of Modern Art in New York to his famous Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut. This oversized volume should appeal to anyone interested in the architecture of the 20th century. With a foreword by Johnson himself, an introduction by his biographer Hilary Lewis, the book contains more than 400 colour and black-and-white photographs, accompanied by detailed building descriptions, presented in chronological order.
