Philip Cortelyou Johnson (July 8, 1906 – January 25, 2005) was an American architect. He is best known for his works of Modern architecture, including the Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut, and his works of postmodern architecture, particularly 550 Madison Avenue which was designed for AT&T, and 190 South La Salle Street in Chicago. In 1978, he was awarded an American Institute of Architects Gold Medal and in 1979 the first Pritzker Architecture Prize.[1]

In 1934, Philip Johnson met Jimmie Daniels, cabaret singer. Daniels was Johnson's first serious relationship. The relationship lasted only one year, and Johnson would recall later that "a terrible man stole him away—who had better sex with him, I gather. But I was naughty. I went to Europe and I would never think of taking Jimmie along."[19]

Johnson, at the age of ninety-eight, died in his sleep while at his Glass House retreat on January 25, 2005. He was survived by his partner of 45 years, David Whitney,[20][21][22][23] who died later that year at age 66.[24]

Johnson was gay, and has been called "the best-known openly gay architect in America."[25] He came out publicly in 1993.[25]

In his will Johnson left his residential compound to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. It is now open to the public.
