Curated by Hilary Lewis, this show presented Philip Johnson's final 15 years of design. These projects underscored Johnson's belief in the artistic basis for architecture. Catalog essay by Lewis.
Launched respectively in 2003 and 2004. Sold to Bonnier Corporation in 2007. Lewis served as founding member of editorial boards and contributed monthly, writing on new development, architectural history and preservation, exhibitions, books and major architects.
This oral history of Johnson's expereinces in architecture is captivating.
