Philip Johnson Glass House
The Philip Johnson Glass House in New Caanan, Connecticut, finished in 1949, is essentially a glass box with an exposed steel frame. It is an excellent example of architecture’s International Style.
 
The only solid walls enclose the bathroom. The rest of the interior is divided by low walnut cabinets. Johnson said, “It’s the only house in the world where you can watch the sun set and the moon rise at the same time.”
 
Philip Cortelyou Johnson (1906-2005) was born to a rich Cleveland family. With the help of his father, he became a millionaire before he finished Harvard. After graduation, he became director of the Department of Architecture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where he introduced America to the streamlined, functional architecture of modern European architects.
 
In his thirties, Johnson returned to Harvard to study architecture. The Glass House, built to be his own home, was his master’s degree thesis.
 
By the 1960s, Johnson had begun to combine classical elements with modern design. The result was buildings like the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California (1980) and the AT&T Building in New York (1984).
 
Philip Johnson’s Glass House is registered as a National Historic Landmark.
