Gnosis, Ltd. was founded to seek and share the knowledge of our collective creative experience. Together, through instigation, interpretation and documentation, we were witness to the impassioned soul that unites all human genius. 

Dear Friends of Gnosis, as of 2014, this organization no longer exists as a nonprofit entity but we will continue to love the questions and the sheer joy of the learning journey Gnosis has been for us.

Michael P. Johnson:
The Unshakeable Search for Architecture

By Louise Noelle, with foreword by Juhani Pallasmaa, designed by Aris Georges 

The book, about the life work of Architect Michael P. Johnson, speaks directly of his regional buildings in both his native Wisconsin in his early career through the work after the migration to Arizona. It also expands upon his work in New York, Colorado, California in the US and further in Canada, Mexico and Italy. In addition, it examines the methodology of Michael’s involvement in teaching at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture for 25 years. One of few books that explores the benefits good architecture can have on our everyday lives.
