Mark Lamster in Conversation with Rick Brettell

Tuesday, November 27, 7:30 p.m.

When architect Philip Johnson died in 2005 at the age of 98, he was one of the most recognizable and influential figures on the American cultural landscape. Johnson introduced European modernism to America through the sleek glass-and-steel structures that now dominate our cities, but he was also a man of deep paradoxes. The Man in the Glass House lifts the veil on Johnson's controversial and endlessly contradictory life to tell the story of a charming yet deeply flawed man. Mark Lamster is the architectural critic for the Dallas Morning News and a professor in the architecture school at the University of Texas at Arlington.
