      July 8th–This Day in History: Philip Johnson

      On this day in 1906, architect Philip Cortelyou Johnson was born in Cleveland, Ohio. Among his many works in New York, including 550 Madison Avenue (the former AT&T building) and the David H. Koch Theater (formerly the New York State Theater) at Lincoln Center, Johnson designed the Bobst Library for NYU with Richard Foster in 1972. Clad in red sandstone, the edifice on the southeast corner of Washington Square Park has had its detractors, but remains a distinctive part of Johnson’s New York portfolio.

      SUPERSTRUCTURES provided comprehensive investigation, design, and construction administration services for the Library’s facade restoration program. This work consisted of resetting existing stone panels, panel stabilization, repair of spalled stone, stone crack repair, and extensive cleaning. The project also included stone joint re-pointing, encapsulating of stone and window joints and caulking at parapet coping joints.
