With Johnson, Lewis wrote two books and numerous articles, including Philip Johnson: The Architect in His Own Words, recipient of the AIA International Architecture Award. Additionally, Johnson spent years with Lewis recording his memoirs and ideas on architecture, work that continues to inform her projects relating to the legacy of Johnson. At Princeton, she focused on history and economics within the Woodrow Wilson School, while also taking advantage of the rich offerings of the art history department. As a graduate student at MIT and Harvard, Lewis studied and taught architectural history, urban planning and real estate development. Her career has consistently combined her interests in public policy and the built environment.
