Thoroughly Modern

The Philip Johnson Glass House

The Philip Johnson Glass House

In New Canaan, Conn., see the Philip Johnson Glass House like you’ve never seen it before when it reopens for 2012 on May 2. Through Nov. 30, “Focus” tours give you unprecedented access to the Pritzker winner’s modernist icon, with 14 structures nestled on 47 acres. The two-hour guided tours ($45 per person) delve into a specific topic – architecture, art, or landscape – delivering more detailed information than you get on the standard tours. Step into the inner sanctum of museum-quality art galleries, eyeball the shelves in Johnson’s private library/study, and tread paths to the formerly off-limits pond and gardens.philipjohnsonglasshouse.org; 203-594-9884
