Visit to A Glass House


I can now imagine living in a transparent box. Standing inside Philip Johnson's Glass House I felt as if I was part of the landscape -- a feeling I would guess is even more acute if it is raining or snowing. The property holds several buildings, but the glass house is the most welcoming.

Thanks for the pic. I'm a architectural idiot, but this place is referenced in pretty much every article about modern design that I've read. Now I see why. It's the model for every modern bus stop shelter in the world! Mr. Johnson was really ahead of his time. If only he had access to Plexiglass, people wouldn't make stone casting jokes about him.
