Our friend Alena got to visit Philip Johnson's Glass House recently and sent us a link to her awesome post about it. There are pictures in a slideshow and many interesting notes about the house, which just opened up to the general public this summer... Do you have an idea for a house tour?

...Johnson spent much of his life at the property and called it his “50 year diary”. The title “Glass House” refers not only to the glass home he built there but also to the other structures and sculptures on the 47 acre estate...

While the Glass House itself if often published, we were surprised to get a peek at the other buildings on the "estate," particularly contrasting one's like the Brick House. There's a lot of weird stuff up there! And Alena's pics of inside the house are excellent at communicating just how BARE this house really is (and was to live in).
