Philip Johnson, born in 1906, has done much to shape the architecture of this century, both through his buildings and his architectural criticism. Legendary is his influential 1932 "The International Style" exhibition for the New York Museum of Modern Art. Among the most renowned buildings from Johnson's extensive oeuvre - over 200 built works are to his credit - are the Glass House and the New York City AT & T skyscraper.

Our housing mess ... and what can be done about it by Peter Blake( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The housing crisis in the United States is primarily urban. Unlike areas of urban blight, rural alums are not slums of despair by any means. "Slums of despair" is a term used in a recent study of urban life to describe those areas in some of our inner cities whose inhabitants feel they are utterly trapped--that they stand little chance of improving their lot. In the study, these desperate regions were contrasted with so-called "slums of hope," where there was some visible evidence that government or the community was committed to building new housing or rehabilitating what existed, as well as to creating jobs. This book is concerned with the ways in which America's hopeless slums might be turned into healthy communities. In city after city, the reduction of housing stock has far outstripped the total construction of new housing. The reasons for this erosion of badly needed low-rent housing are complex. Housing subsidies--which means, primarily, subsidies for land acquisition, mortgage interest and rent--are absolutely essential if new housing is to be created to meet the needs of low-income families. But successive administrations and a Congress not particularly responsive to urban problems have cut back and will continue to cut back such subsidies, and so these indispensable programs are dying on the vine.
