Glass House by Philip Johnson – 1949

Hace ya casi un año pude visitar esta “Casa de Vidrio” – “The Glass House”, diseñada por el arquitecto Phillip Johnson. He aqui algunas de las fotos que tome en esta visita, tan geometrica y de mucha perspectiva. Sin limites entre el interior y el exterior. Una visita interesante para un fin de semana de excursion.

Les recomiendo comprar sus boletos con anterioridad para hacer una visita guiada dentro de la casa, los grupos de visita no son numerosos y vale la pena poder entrar y observar, escuchar a la guia y las historias, alguna personales, del Sr Johnson, un personaje tambien muy peculiar como esta casa.

The Philip Johnson Glass House, a National Trust Historic Site, offers its 47-acre campus as a catalyst for the preservation and interpretation of modern architecture, landscape, and art; and as a canvas for inspiration and experimentation honoring the legacy of Philip Johnson (1906-2005) and David Whitney (1939-2005).

The Philip Johnson Glass House was completed in 1949. Inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House (Plano, IL, 1951), its exterior walls are of glass with no interior walls, a radical departure from houses of the time. The Glass House began a fifty-year odyssey of architectural experimentation in forms, materials, and ideas through the addition of many “pavilions”—the Brick House/Guest House, Pond Pavilion, Painting Gallery, Sculpture Gallery, Ghost House, Library/Study, and DaMonsta—and the methodical sculpting of the surrounding forty-acre landscape.
