In this book, one hundred artists, architects, and designers reflect on the idea and reality of glass houses, and respond to two of modernism's greatest masterpieces: the Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Farnsworth House and the Philip Johnson Glass House. From David Adjaye to Zaha Hadid, Iņigo Manglano-Ovalle to Ed Ruscha, and Constantin Boym to Paula Scher, these contemporary visionaries examine the glass houses in all their dimensions. Through works of art and written statements, the artists express their thoughts and inspirations about either or both of these iconic buildings and the architects who created them-a dynamic exchange that continues to fire one of the greatest cultural dialogues of our time. For the first time, construction drawings and sketches of both houses by Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson are published in this book.
