the glass house: environs

In addition to the Glass House, there are 13 other structures on the 47-acre property (Johnson built a new structure roughly every ten years) including his library and study (above). There are also a few site specific installations, like the concrete structure by Donald Judd (below).
 Johnson also built the Brick House (below) to serve as a guest quarters and art gallery.
It soon turned out that the Brick House was too small to hold his entire art collection, so he added a separate bunker-like painting gallery (below) and sculpture gallery.
One of my favorite structures was the Ghost House, originally built to encase a collection of lilies. Now it fills with the local grasses until you can't even distinguish it from the surrounding landscape.
