Architect: Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe
Meis and Johnson have a strong connection. They worked at the same time, and Johnson curated an exhibtion of the German exhile's work at MOMA in 1947. Word is that Mies thought the Glass House was shit, and Johnson's view of the Lake Shore Drive Apartments is less publicized. What is known, however, is that the twin towers employ a pioneering use of glass curtain walls.
