“I have expensive wallpaper.”

“I have expensive wallpaper.” -Philip Johnson

The view out of the Glass House through all four seasons. The experience of looking at the Glass House is very different from looking out at the landscape from inside the Glass House. This video shows how much the view is a part of the Glass House and becomes a kind of “wallpaper.”

Photography by Steve Brosnahan.

Film, no audio, also on view at The Philip Johnson Glass House Visitor Center in New Canaan, CT, USA.
