Philip Johnson's Glass House


Stopped by the Philip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan the other day...


The library (above) was fascinating, though not what I would have chosen.


The glass house itself was great. Amy said she would live there in a second. Our wonderful house (Nomad's End) took offense.


Looked like a great place to chat with friends, or work on my next book.


Then, fog enveloped the house from an art installation - creating an eerie, and wet, situation.



We also got to see the art museum and sculpture museum Johnson installed on the property, but did not get to climb the sculpture in the distance. Next time...


It is an expensive tour ($50 person) but well worth it from our point of view. Inspiring and thought-provoking. We had discussions all afternoon and evening about the ideas brought up...
