the glass house

yesterday’s trip to the glass house was such an incredible experience. some days i have to pinch myself and remember that things like this are real. we got to stroll the grounds of philip johnson’s estate for about 90 minutes and check out the main glass house, the guest house, the art gallery (or the “kunst bunker” as he called it), the sculpture gallery and a super-modern structure called the “da monsta”. there were a handful of other buildings on the lot we weren’t able to see but what we did was incredible. i’ll be posting a full slideshow on monday but here’s a little sneak peek inside, pre-slideshow…

I can’t believe you got to go there. I was just reading an article about this house, and how so many of these historic homes are being TORN DOWN to build McMansions. So sad – this is beautiful.

Can’t wait to see your pictures. We tried to book a tour and they were sold out for the entire month of August and well into September. So happy you loved it.
