Glass House Director, Henry Urbach, will visit Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht, Cologne, and Brno, Czech Republic for his lecture tour with Iconic Houses. His lecture considers the history of the Glass House and its transformation from a private residence to a historic house museum and center for new art and ideas. The lecture will explore some of the more complex aspects of the Glass House campus, including references to historical architecture and Johnson’s own life, and consider how its exhibitions contribute to a rich interpretation of the site. There will also be a film screening of Diary of an Eccentric Architect, filmed on site with Philip Johnson.
