Resumen: Witty, wealthy, and well connected, the architect Philip Johnson was for years the most powerful figure in the cultural politics of his profession. As the Museum of Modern Art's (founding architecture curator in the early 1930s, he helped establish modernism in the United States; as the architect of New York (AT&T building - the Chippendale skyscraper) he gave postmodernism commercial viability on a large scale during the 1980s. In this book, sixteen eminent voices in the architectural establishment present their ideas on Johnson, focusing on both his eclectic design approach and his vivid intellect. Among the topics covered are Johnson's wide-ranging knowledge of art history, his endorsement of different versions of architectural modernism, his use of rhetoric and the mass media, his social persona, and his politics of patronage
