From the Publisher. Delves deeply into architect Philip Johnson’s (1906–2005) life—from his childhood in the Midwest to his years at Harvard, from his coming to terms with his homosexuality to his flirtation with the politics of Hitler, Huey Long, and Father Coughlin—to paint an unprecedented portrait of this extraordinary man. A patron of the arts, Johnson helped stage the historic International Style exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1932. A critic, a teacher, a “borrower” of ideas, and a living history of modern and postmodern architecture, Johnson created many controversial and historical buildings, including the Glass House, the Roofless Church, the AT&T Building, and the Crystal Cathedral.
