How was your weekend? Mine was stupendous! Saturday dawned sunny and beautiful--the absolute perfect day for a tour of Philip Johnson's Glass House and estate. If possible, the buildings and grounds were even more wonderful and inspirational than I anticipated. It made me realize that I need to learn more about modern architecture.
That said, I was trying to figure out a way to help you understand the powerful beauty and serenity of this place. The above video tour, hosted by RISD President John Maeda, begins to give you an idea of the natural oasis that is the Glass House, but I would also suggest that you watch the interview series (chronicling people's reactions to their visit) on their website here. Awesome!
