The houses of Philip Johnson by Stover Jenkins ( Book )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For almost three-quarters of a century, as a critic and curator beginning in the 1930s, and as a practicing architect since the 1940s, Philip Johnson has been at the center of modern architecture's development. His celebrated Glass House, built in 1949 in New Canaan, Connecticut - a crystallization of Johnson's commitment to the high modernism of his mentor Mies van der Rohe - is perhaps the single most famous house of the twentieth century. Until now, however, that house has not been looked at in the context of Johnson's many other house projects. This book, the first to comprehensively survey Johnson's residential work, not only brings to light a largely neglected side of Johnson's achievement, but freshly illuminates his entire career."--BOOK JACKET

The Glass House by Philip Johnson ( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Glass House, designed by celebrated architect Philip Johnson as a personal retreat, is an icon of modern architecture. A crystalline box set in a serene New England landscape, the house is now owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, which will open it to visitors in April 2007. Johnson used his property near New Canaan, Connecticut, as an architectural laboratory, adding nine additional structures over a forty-year period. Among them are the Ghost House, a chain-link tribute to Frank Gehry, and the witty, bright red Gate House. Glass House is a unique presentation of the Glass House complex in words and photographs. Compiled by eminent critic Toshio Nakamura under the sponsorship of YKK AP Inc., the volume features a specially commissioned suite of photographs, taken throughout the four seasons, by renowned architectural photographer Michael Moran, including cross-processed images and images taken with infrared film. The deluxe graphic presentation, with distinctive paper stocks and foldout pages reproducing Johnson's original drawings, was conceived by designer Michael Rock of 2x4

Sir John Soane an English architect, an American legacy ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"All great art engages in a dialogue with the past. Architecture is no exception, as this film shows in its examination of the legacy of Sir John Soane (1753-1837), an English architect of rare genius whose influence on a generation of America's foremost architects is profound...This film investigates both the influence of antiquity on Soane, following in his Grand Tour footsteps through Rome and Sicily, as well as the ways his stripped-down classical style helped guide the American architects out of the strictures of Modernism." -- Container

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Shows how in America, where ties to ancient cultures have been broken, we have individually and collectively had to invent a shared architectural past. From the practical shelters built by the Pilgrims at Plimouth Plantation to the classical ideals of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello to the stylistic diversity of our own time, our buildings reflect the strong-willed individuals who have fused national and personal mythologies"--Container
