Today's archidose #986: PJ Edition

Today is the #saveatt protest over Snøhetta's plans to disfigure Philip Johnson's iconic AT&T Building. Before heading there to observe and maybe partake, I raided my Flickr pool (as well as photos of people I follow and my own photos) to collect images of other Philip Johnson buildings. So here's a smattering of 18 buildings presented in chronological order. Mouseover or click photos for information on the photographers.

  1. This is wonderful. Having grown up at the Crystal Cathedral, I've been a PJ fan for some time. I only hope that the public attention his work is getting yet can save AT&T from a tactless 'upgrade'.
