Who here isn't a copycat? What is a copycat in our days? Everything around us has been copied from some sort of past invention. History in architecture is a bunch of periods coming back to the present future, to fade out again, to come back again. Philip was not an architect to start off, he was an art director who studied a lot on history. He may not have had the revolutionary concepts as Le Corbusier and Mies had, but he had his own interpretation of it, that's what counts in archittecture, I think, and what YOU will develop based on some great concept. Who decided to hold up Johnson on some super high pedestal... he IS a great architect. The hardest thing in today's architecture is to invent a new style, or how about a new movement, don't you think?
