Glass House

Creator: Johnson, Philip
Date: 1949
Present location: New Canaan, Connecticut, U.S.A.
Description of labor: "Johnson’s long-standing devotion to Mies van der Rohe was obvious in his early buildings, predominantly suburban residences. Chief amongst these was the Glass Home (1949) at New Canaan, CT, designed for his personal use and extensively considered one among his most interesting works. Derived from Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth Home (1946–51) at Plano, IL, however extra classical in plan, the Glass Home attests to Johnson’s naturally crucial flip of thoughts and his preoccupation with historical past. In an article written in 1950 for the Architectural Evaluate, he listed the influences behind the Glass Home, which included not solely Mies van der Rohe but in addition Le Corbusier, Claude-Nicolas Ledoux, Kazimir Malevich, Karl Friedrich Schinkel and the De Stijl motion." – Franz Schulze, Grove Artwork On-line
