The Glass House is a preservation-based organization, and its 14 buildings, art collection and 47-acre landscape are subject to ongoing maintenance throughout the year. Current site work: Restoring the Brick House (ongoing; the Brick House is currently closed to the public). Learn more about this project, a model for the preservation of Modernist heritage.
Each year the Glass House embarks on projects to preserve and protect the site's structures, artwork, and landscape. Past projects include the conservation of artwork in the collection by Nicolas Poussin and Frank Stella, the replacement of the roof and glass of the Glass House, and the installation of site pathways to adhere to ADA standards. In 2012, preservation work focused on the Lincoln Kirstein Tower and the Pavilion. In 2011, the Glass House focused on the preservation of the Brick House, the Donald Judd's site-specific sculpture and Elie Nadelman's Two Circus Women. Preservation projects have been generously funded by Oldcastle Glass, Agnes Gund, The Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism, The Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation and The Urban Glass House.
