We all know (and adore) his magnificent Glass House, but Phillip Johnson doesn’t always receive credit for his many other notable works. The architect’s prolific career lasted almost 70 years, and during that time he designed residences, skyscrapers, churches, conventions centers, and much more – all over the world. Below we take a look at just a few of the amazing structures that were born out of the magnificent mind of Phillip Johnson.
