CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The Glass House, designed by celebrated architect Philip Johnson as a personal
retreat, is an icon of modern architecture. A crystalline box set in a serene
New England landscape, the house is now owned by the National Trust for
Historic Preservation, which will open it to visitors in April 2007. Johnson
used his property near New Canaan, Connecticut, as an architectural laboratory,
adding nine additional structures over a forty-year period. Among them are the
Ghost House, a chain-link tribute to Frank Gehry, and the witty, bright red
Glass House is a unique presentation of the Glass House complex in words and
photographs. Compiled by eminent critic Toshio Nakamura under the sponsorship
of YKK AP Inc., the volume features a specially commissioned suite of
photographs, taken throughout the four seasons, by renowned architectural
photographer Michael Moran, including cross-processed images and images taken
with infrared film. The deluxe graphic presentation, with distinctive paper
stocks and foldout pages reproducing Johnson's original drawings, was conceived
by designer Michael Rock of 2x4.
