Item Description

This 80 page book visually documents Philip Johnson's Glass House in New Caanan, Connecticut. It also documents Johnson's six-decade exploration of architecture. This happens via a site plan, short texts by Paul Goldberger and Johnson (from a 1993 book on the house, one of many to focus on the influential structure), numerous color photos, a timeline of important events, and "site facts" on the buildings and artwork dotting the land.
