Book Description: The past decade has witnessed the realization of Philip Johnson and John Burgee's most innovative buildings in their eighteen-year professional collaboration. No single architectural team has had a stronger impact on the shape of the American skyline. Their impressive output makes an updated volume on their work timely and welcome, both to the architectural community and to the interested public. The twenty-five projects featured in this volume include high-rise office buildings and urban complexes, colleges and cultural centers, commercial and religious monuments. A distinctive and highly varied repertory emerges: the Romanesque ensemble of the New Cleveland PlayHouse; the neoclassical AT&T building in NewYork City; a mansard-roofed skyscraper in San Francisco (adorned with classical statues); the Dutch-gabled Republic Bank Center in Houston; Boston's "village of skyscrapers," International Place at Fort Hill; and that major twentieth century space in Garden Grove, California- the steel and glass Crystal Cathedral. The volume also features buildings currently in production and under construction, such as the triple-tiered, oval-shaped office building on Fifty-third Street and Third Avenue in New York, a very creative manipulation of the New York City zoning laws and the new home of John Burgee Architects with Philip Johnson.The illustrated main text is supplemented by a chronological index providing in capsule form a history of their major built projects -- from dust jacket.

Book Description: "In this book, Frank Welch draws on interviews with Johnson, his professional colleagues, and the patrons who commissioned his buildings to discover why Johnson has done his best work in the Lone Star State. He opens with an overview of Johnson's formative years as an architect, leading up to his pivotal meeting with Dominique and John de Menil, who chose him to build their house in Houston in the late 1940s. Welch fully chronicles Johnson's long association with the de Menils and other wealthy Texans and the many commissions this produced, including the University of St. Thomas and Pennzoil Place in Houston, the Kennedy Memorial, Thanks-Giving Square, and the Cathedral of Hope in Dallas, the Amon Carter Museum and the Water Garden in Fort Worth, and the Art Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi, as well as the numerous skyscrapers Johnson designed for Houston developer Gerald Hines, and several private residences."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Book Description: In the world of modern art, the idea of appropriation, or the conscious manipulation of the recognised world of another artist, has long been accepted as a legitimate strategy in criticism of the tradition of art authorship, challenging the context of viewing contemporary work and the manipulation of omnipresent media images. The world of art itself is fair game to be pillaged or mined in the production of new art, but there is almost no recognised equivalent aesthetic in architecture. Philip Johnson consistently dealt with the concept of appropriation and used it as a design strategy from the very beginning of his illustrious career. A singular taste-maker, Philip Johnson influenced art, architecture and design during the second half of the 20th century. Philip Johnson and His Mischief: Appropriation in Art and Architecture looks at the concept of appropriation and how Johnson’s style was influenced first by his mentor, Mies van der Rohe, and then by post-modern ideas and artists. This title serves to review Johnson’s body of work and show that, far from being a weakness, his use of appropriation was a major part of his innovative success.
