Categories: Architecture + Interiors

You may have noticed; as much of the consumer buying public did, that clothing company J.Crew placed the photoshoot for their last catalog on the immaculate grounds of the Richard Neutra-designed Kaufmann Desert house.

This building, known as Da Monsta, is the visitor center at the Philip Johnson Glass House site. The site also includes numerous constructions by Johnson in a few different styles.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has acquired two new modern-era designed buildings, the Philip Johnson-designed Glass House and the Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Farnsworth House. Both houses can be seen in this month’s (May/ June) issue of the organization’s Preservation magazine which discusses a new appreciation of Modernism in terms of architecture and the need for on-going protection.
