GLASS HOUSE TOUR
Several Friar employees visited Philip Johnson’s Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut at the end of May. The Glass House, built in 1949, is a great early example of industrial materials in home design and a true testament to the Minimalist Movement in Architecture. The house sits on 49 beautifully wooded acres along with several other pieces of modern architecture sculptures and follies scattered throughout the property. The group toured the Glass House and many of the buildings within close proximity, which helped give a broader view of this large complex and a sense of Philip Johnson’s vision.
