Vintage hardback coffee table book featuring the architectural work of artist Philip Johnson. By Charles Noble, published in 1972. 1st edition, 130 pages.
"The career of Philip Johnson as a practicing architect began only in his thirties, after he had already established himself as a critic and historian. His enthusiasm for the architecture of the modern movement was confirmed by a visit to Europe in 1928, during which the young Harvard graduate met Miës van der Rohe, who was to become the most influential figure in his career. The architecture of Johnson is thus inextricably bound up with that of his mentor and friend."
