Glass Pieces

Ok, Ok, so Glass Pieces is a piece by Philip Glass, I know.... However, Philip Johnson's Glass House is being reopened for public viewing. In Time magazine last week there was a story called "Splendor in Glass," detailing this reopening, and discussing the fate of other Modernist houses and buildings. You should check it out at time.com/glasshouse. The pictures of the Glass House are pretty amazing. My favorites though are of the other structures on the compound, such as the underground painting gallery, and the sculpture house. Craziness! And beautiful. And...clever. Those silly modernists.
Go look at the pictures now!!
