People Who Live In Glass Houses...

Where do the great ones go that were already living in Heaven on Earth? That's what I kept asking myself today while touring 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."

Brilliant!!! It's my understanding that Philip Johnson made arrangements to donate the Glass House and grounds to the National Trust for Historic Preservation years before he died. By doing so he was able to work with the Trust in planning the future use of the property. So when on tour, one can know that the tour is exactly how Mr. Johnson wanted it to be!

Here's a link to the Glass House website--as of today, tickets are still available for some days in the 2009 season!

hello--

I work in the Visitor Center at the Glass House. I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit. I was directed to your blog by one of your friends who I spoke to on the phone today. very nice! I hope you will come visit us again. I was out at the site this evening and there was a thunderstorm which resulted in a perfect rainbow over the top of the Painting Gallery; it was magical! If you or anyone you know would like information on tickets for tours, please tell them to call me, my contact information can be found on the Glass House website.
