Discussion[edit]

MSTCrow 03:31, Feb 4, 2005 (UTC) What about Poper Ratzinger's Nazi past? Also, I think that given he left Germany in 1939, give him some credit for waking up from his stupor.131.96.70.164 07:32, 22 November 2006 (UTC)

  • I agree that it would be good to summarize this (see also the article "Form follows fascism" in the 1/31/2005 New York Times). I myself had no knowledge of this previously. (Someone added one sentence, but it's clearly not really enough.) —Steven G. Johnson 17:04, Feb 6, 2005 (UTC)
  • Source for recent edits re: Johnson's fascist past is Franz Schulze's biography "Philip Johnson: Life and Work" and Kazys Varnelis's online article "We Cannot Not Know History", at http://varnelis.net/research/johnson.html. I've traded emails with Professor Varnelis and he is a thoroughly credible source as well as a nice guy. --Lockley 02:40, 24 September 2005 (UTC)
  • I added some info on this....hopefully, after several edits, I came up with something balanced. (PS, added bullet points to all comments, for some odd reason they are all running together....) NickBurns 20:30, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

Um...[edit]

If you see something missing in an article....add it. NickBurns 16:56, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

What would be the best way to work this in?[edit]

I wanted to include more than just a one-line mention of his cenotaph for the John F. Kennedy Memorial near Dealey Plaza in Dallas, but I can't find an appropriate place. I added it to the list of noted works, but wanted to add a bit more, such as the fact that he was invited personally by Stanley Marcus and that he waived his fee for the project. It doesn't fit under the heading "Later Buildings" because it isn't a building. I suppose we could change it to later works ... there also was a wonderful quote, haven't been able to pin down a year, regarding Marcus' effect on his career:

Anyone have ideas on how this material could be worked in appropriately? Lawikitejana 00:23, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

No mention of the Lipstick Building?[edit]

Hahaha! I bet some autistic deletionist purged the Lipstick Building ("non-notable!") from this page. No wonder no one bothers contributing anymore. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 140.239.233.66 (talk) 20:51, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

No Mention of Johnson/Burgee?[edit]

There's no mention of this firm (other than in credits) nor are any other firms with which he was associated mentioned? --TMH (talk) 20:11, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
