CT: Fairfield County: New Canaan- The Glass house

Finding outdoor adventures have been my respite through the pandemic. I’m amazed at how much Connecticut has offered me having been a NYC brat even after I moved here.

On my list for years was a visit to Philip Johnson’s glass house. Philip Johnson was a renowned architect whose influence can be found around the world.

On the self guided tour you meet kind and knowledgeable docents who share not only the history of the grounds and his work but his whimsical quotes which make you appreciate his character.

There are different structures around the property each with its specific intent and design.

As I won’t do either justice, I would encourage a visit to the property should this have sparked your interest!

Below is the link for a better overview and tickets. As I write I have only been on the grounds but interior tours will soon be reopening!
