"The architect's voraciously intellectual approach to architecture, combined with a kind of energetic desire for new forms, is probably rooted in two formative experiences of hisearly youth... Stunningly rare for an artist as acclaimed as Johnson is his ability to shelve much of hisego in favor of working out painstaking compromises with his client of the day...The preeminent Frank Lloyd Wright was scribbling designs for America until his death at 92. Philip Johnson has already surpassed that benchmark and is now charting creative waters all on his own."
