Writing - a Method:

In order to situate and clarify my Theoretical Position, articulating through Description, Criticism and/or Analysis, which compels a somewhat eclectic, inclusive, "catholic" (little 'c')non-rhetorical  position, free from any bias based on "style" per se, I tried to capture a sense of Subject in giving Titles to my pieces/reviews/essays which hopefully made my Intentions clear.

My first published Criticism was a Letter to The Editor of Architectural Forum, written while a student at Yale. I was  annoyed at Philip Johnson, whose Book Philip Johnson Architecture 1949-1965, seemed to me a "camp" vanity piece. Having come to New Haven from Princeton, perhaps I brought its seriousness with me: see 'WORK'/ Portfolio 14, Student Work at Princeton and Yale.

The Book: graphic design by Elaine Lustig, Helvetica of course as it was 1966, and a bit "cute". A homage to Mies, where 'PJ' and 'hh' were extrusions.

Lacking many Details [such as North Arrows on Plans], there was lots of white space, and full-color photos. Context? Nope.

Introduction by noneother than Henry-Russell Hitchcock, longtime Friend of Philip, and collaborator on the 1932 MoMA  show "Modern Architecture: International Exhibition.

The very first instance of attempting to write essentially what was an Opinion/Critique, began as a "Letter to the Editor" of Architectural Forum. [see opposite]


A bit "snippy" in Tone, admittedly in hind-sight, nonetheless it represents a first step in what became an eventual focus of my "contribution to the Profession", a willingness to state a case, expect reaction or response, and see where that would leave me.

Not only did this small argument manifest a decision to 'profess' openly, and center on teaching Architecture literally as a Professor, but also impact my Practice. Who knew?


Surprisingly, my little Letter was the longest chosen; "the Kid" was in Good Company. The Mayor of Montreal [referring to Expo 67], and Professor Percy Johnson-Marshall, University of Edinburgh.

Philip Johnson forgave me in 1968 by being the first to contribute $10,000 in support of my PERSPECTA 12 The Yale Architectural Journal. "CLICK" to link
