The masterful architect and last surviving member of the Harvard Five passed away yesterday at the age of 96. Earlier this week, we wrote about Johansen's Goodyear House, which is for sale in Darien, Conn. The passionate comments and hundreds of facebook "likes" we received on this post were heartwarming and a testament to the power of great design. Johansen's work, while at times controversial, is outstanding for its bravery and intelligence. We thank Mr. Johansen for sharing his vision with the world. Our thoughts are with his family as we remember this extraordinary man. You can read more about him in today's New York Times.
