John Johansen died on October 25. His name is virtually unknown in Baltimore, but his legacy is not. He was the architect of our Morris Mechanic Theater. Johansen was one of the Harvard Five, a group of young post World War II architects that included such giants as Philip Johnson and Marcel Brewer. To add further to his professional creditability, he married Walter Gropius' daughter. (Gropius was the founder of Germany's Bauthaus School of Architecture.) The Morris Mechanic is a wonderful rendition of the style known as Brutalism.

John M. Johansen has painful memories of a time when TV personalities Phil Donahue and Marlo Thomas paid $6.8 million to purchase a house he designed in Connecticut, only to tear it down. "It was like a death in the family," he laments. Now the retired architect wants to avert another death - this time a theater he designed for downtown Baltimore. Parking lot operators have purchased the dormant Morris A. Mechanic Theatre in Charles Center for $6 million and teamed with a developer who wants to build housing, stores and maybe a hotel on the site.

GOOD THINGS can happen when we're inspired by our friends. Last month, Savage resident Elaine Johansen mentioned to friends that she wanted to decorate Carroll Baldwin Hall for the holidays.She had seen the beautiful, big wreaths that Charla Long, also of Savage, had used to decorate the 1922 community building the previous year -- and felt inspired.So the Sunday after Thanksgiving, Johansen stopped by a neighbor's yard -- the donor wishes to remain anonymous -- to cut greens to decorate the hall.
