Architecture -- Metropolis

Paul Warchol

1995: Da Monsta

Johnson intended Da Monsta, which he named in a nod to hip-hop idiom, as a future visitors' center. (New Canaan rejected the idea, and plans are under way for an off-site center.) The building is composed of a three-dimensional wire grid with concrete on the outside, Styrofoam in the middle, and plaster on the interior.
