the glass house

It's been a long time dream of mine to visit all the buildings I studied in school and I become exceptionally happy when I get to cross something off my list. My parents were in town this weekend, so I dragged them out to Connecticut to visit the Glass House, Philip Johnson's private residence until his death in 2005. At 1700 square feet, the space is pretty much perfectly proportioned and exceptionally thoughtful. And if you are concerned about the neighbors seeing in, he owned the surrounding 47 acres....so, that really wasn't an issue. Interiors and the rest of the campus to come!
