Glass Houses

Architecture & Interiors

As the last remnants of snow and cold melt away the desire to be outdoors grows more urgent.    The sunshine transforms once dormant plants into pantone gradations of green.   The best thing about being in a glass house is the view of nature all around you.   Glass houses by definition are modern and sometimes associated with being cold.  However, one cannot argue that bringing in the sunshine definitely adds warmth.    Philip Johnson, way before his time, is still relevant with his stunning design of the “Glass House” on the grassy lawn of New Canaan, Connecticut shown above.   Here are a few more spectacular contemporary versions … built well after 1949.

This glass house above was designed by Santambrogiomilano.

This Water Glass house stunner above  is designed by Kengo Kuma.

The Ring House, picture above, is standing in middle of a forest in the outskirts of Japan is designed by Takei-Nabeshima Architects.

And please! No stone throwing.
Have an infinitely modern day!
