Philip Johnson: The Glass Lover

Philip Cortelyou Johnson was born on 8th July, 1906 in USA. He was the founder of Architecture and Design Department at the Museum of Modern Art. He was very popular for the extensive usage of glass in his designs. A number of people have written very detailed custom essays on the remarkable works of Philip Cortelyou Johnson.
The Glass House designed by Johnson in 1949, was considered to be a masterpiece in the field of architecture. He designed this house for his own living. The amazing effects of reflection and transparency in its walls are the things that distinguish it from rest of the works of that period. The delicacy and beauty of glass had so much inspired him that he rejected the conventional style of buildings with metallic appearances and went for the crystalline structures that were much more attractive. The Seagram Building also acted as a milestone in the professional career of Johnson. He worked in collaboration with other architects for the completion of this 39-story building. This project was a turning point in his career and he began to get projects from the general public as well. In 1984, the AT&T Building was completed which is situated in Manhattan and was quite controversial because of the use of non-Georgian pediment for its design. It was a real skyscraper of Manhattan at that time. Nowadays it is called the Sony Building. I think that his designs were so phenomenal that anyone can easily buy essays on his brilliant architectural contributions.
