9780300121810: Philip Johnson: The Constancy of Change (Yale School of Architecture)

Essays by Beatriz Colomina, Peter Eisenman, Kurt W. Forster, Mark Jarzombek, Charles Jencks, Phyllis Lambert, Reinhold Martin, Detlef Mertins, Joan Ockman, Terence Riley, Vincent Scully, Michael Sorkin, Kazys Varnelis, Stanislaus von Moos, Ujjval Vyas, and Mark Wigley

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’s 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.

 

Owing perhaps to the control he exerted over critiques of his work, few scholarly treatments of Johnson exist. This unauthorized” account, the first in-depth study to follow his death, constitutes a milestone in the analysis of one of America’s most renowned architects.

About the Author:

Emmanuel Petit is assistant professor at the Yale School of Architecture.

From Publishers Weekly:

Responding to criticism of the skyscrapers he was building in 1983, Pritzker Prize–winning architect Philip Johnson (1906–2005) replied, "I am a whore." The 16 essayists in this volume, edited by Petit, assistant professor at Yale's School of Architecture—and originally presented in a symposium co-sponsored in 2006 by Yale and the Museum of Modern Art—tackle Johnson's "whoredom," his enormous influence as a curator and the mixed quality of his built legacy from historical, theoretical and sociological perspectives. The contributors admit, as Joan Ockman writes, that "his claim to fame may be his greatest claim to fame," and that few of his critics could be as truthful about his shortcomings as was the architect himself. His involvement with Father Coughlin's anti-Semitism in the 1930s runs through many of the essays, but so does admiration for the compound he developed in New Canaan, Conn., for his Glass House and other outlying buildings. One finishes this book with the feeling that Johnson is a case for further study, summed up by one essayist as the star of "a reality-TV show that ran longer than anyone could have imagined." 163 b&w and 53 color illus.
