Описание: Philip Johnson's Glass House (1949) in New Cann, Connecticut, is one of the icons of modern architecture. Ironically, its fame has obscured Johnson's many other notable residential projects, which are here studied in depth for the first time. Drawing on exhaustive research and extensive interviews with Johnson, his colleagues, and his clients, this elegant book presents more than too projects, many of them virtually unknown. Special attention is given to the Glass House, which established Johnson's architectural reputation, and to the other structures on the grounds of Johnson's estate in New Canaan, a pilgrimage site for students of architecture. Authors David Mohney and Stover Jenkins explore the impact of the Glass House on Johnson's subsequent designs, and they then proceed to cover the full range of Johnson's domestic-architecture, with emphasis on his exploration of recurring elements, including the inventive use of courtyards, the distinction between private and public space, and the close attention he has always paid to how his buildings are sited within the landscape. The authors present many fascinating, little-known Johnson house projects, unbuilt or so altered over the years that they can be understood only through the drawings and plans presented here. The informative text is complemented by Steven Brooke's unusually handsome photographs, which capture how Johnson used light, space, and landscape to create some of modernism's most appealing houses.

Описание: In the world of modern art, the idea of appropriation, or the conscious manipulation of the recognised world of another artist, has long been accepted as a legitimate strategy in criticism of the tradition of art authorship, challenging the context of viewing contemporary work and the manipulation of omnipresent media images. The world of art itself is fair game to be pillaged or mined in the production of new art, but there is almost no recognised equivalent aesthetic in architecture. Philip Johnson consistently dealt with the concept of appropriation and used it as a design strategy from the very beginning of his illustrious career.
A singular taste-maker, Philip Johnson influenced art, architecture and design during the second half of the 20th century. 'Philip Johnson and His Mischief: Appropriation in Art and Architecture' looks at the concept of appropriation and how Johnson's style was influenced first by his mentor, Mies van der Rohe, and then by post-modern ideas and artists.Charting his career through the 1980s and beyond, this title serves to review Johnson's body of work and show that, far from being a weakness, his use of appropriation was a major part of his innovative success.
