Educational Partnership with New Canaan High School

Educational Partnership
An exciting collaboration between the Glass House and New Canaan High School began shortly after the Glass House opened to the public. Photography, documentary film and journalism students, with the support of their teachers, record oral history films of the architects, craftsmen and homeowners who created New Canaan’s remarkable heritage of modernist residential architecture.

Watch new student films featuring designer Jens Risom, photographer Pedro Guerrero, builder Port Draper, and Pamela Gores, wife of Harvard Five architect Landis Gores.
