Famous Glass House calls New Canaan home
New Canaan, Connecticut is home to the famous Glass House that was designed by an architect responsible for playing a defining role in postmodernist architecture.
The house, which is part of the trust for historic preservation, sits on a 49-acre property and was designed by Philip Johnson, and completed in 1949.
To see the great virtue of the Glass House
, stand outside where you can see every inch of the interior.
Johnson was a well-known architect and curator of architecture too.
After designing the Glass House, he went on to design at least six other buildings on the property.
The property is open to the public and even holds a scavenger hunt that guests can complete during their visit.
Educator Gwen North Reiss recommends bringing comfortable shoes when visiting because there are a lot of slopes in meadows.
She says several paths also take guests up and down different parts of the landscape.
