Philip Johnson's Glass House and it's breath-taking landscapes. The design of the main house is beyond spectacular and has been studied, documented and celebrated since it was originally built in, believe it or not, 1949. However, until you actually visit the property and are able to fully take in the lush vistas along with the other individual structures, you have no way of grasping the magnitude of this architectural masterpiece. A study, guest house, painting gallery and sculpture gallery along with a visitor's center are thoughtfully, and purposefully placed around the property and are no doubt considered modern marvels of architecture on their own. This is my second tour of the Glass House; I was fortunate enough to visit last spring during previews. Yet I really wanted to see it again in the fall, my favorite season. Being able to view the property in two different contexts makes me appreciate even more Mr. Johnson's famous quote regarding the Glass House - "I have very expensive wallpaper."
