Overview

The small, regional architectural firms working throughout the United States and abroad have a more profound effect on the built environment than the cultural imperialism thrust upon us, harking back to the Pre-Modernist movement of the last century.

Looking back 50-60 years we can find architects such as Bruce Goff; Oklahoma, Jack Hilmer; California and Al Beadle; Arizona, to see how their work influences architectural culture and generations of young students.
The book, about the life work of Architect Michael P. Johnson, speaks directly of his regional buildings in both his native Wisconsin in his early career through the work after the migration to Arizona. It also expands upon his work in New York, Colorado, California in the US and further in Canada, Mexico and Italy. In addition, it examines the methodology of Michael’s involvement in teaching at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture for 25 years. One of few books that explores the benefits good architecture can have on our everyday lives.
