Join in our online Glass House Conversation at http://glasshouseconversations.org!
This week’s question has occupied imaginations for more than half a century (The Glass House + Brick House were built in 1949) and continue to inspire many great debates, including a recent Huffington Post commentary.
In our latest Conversations in Context Film, and in the introduction to our new Glass House Book, Architecture Critic Paul Goldberger discusses Philip Johnson living in the Glass House, and the Glass House campus as example of the opportunities for experimentation that come with being one’s own client.

Theo Prudon and Shashi Caan speak in the Glass House during the Conversations in Context Program
by Gwen North Reiss
Before the beginning of the Conversations in Context Program on July 21 as our mid-summer heat wave settled in, Theo Prudon (Architect and President of Docomomo US) and Shashi Caan (Director of the International Federation of Interior Designers) sat on the promontory for a brief videotaped interview led by Hunter Palmer, Director of Programs and Visitors’ Experience.
