Philip Johnson

Yes I am late, but better late than never. I wanted to mark the passing of architect Philip Johnson who died on January 25th. He had a major impact on Houston architecture. Among the list of buildings that Johnson designed are Houston’s Pennzoil Place, the Bank of America Center (my personal favorite), the Williams Tower and its Water Wall, and the University of St. Thomas campus including the gold domed chapel. Johnson said in an interview “”I saved all my best buildings for Houston.” We thank you for that.
