The Glass House: Bauhaus and Beyond

This event is part of Archtober’s virtual Travel To series. Travel To seeks to highlight iconic architecture and historically significant sites across the United States. Join us as curators, preservationists, historians (and more!) bring these places and spaces alive in the comfort of your home.

Join us for a virtual tour of The Glass House, former home of Philip Johnson and an essential chapter in the history of modernism in America. Hilary Lewis, Chief Curator and Creative Director at The Glass House, will present the history of the property in relation to Johnson’s extensive experience with the early days of modernism and his many decades in the practice of architecture. Johnson’s roles at The Museum of Modern Art as a curator and major patron also contribute to how the property melds architecture, art, and landscape.
