Designed by American architect Philip Johnson as his own residence, the Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut (US), sent shockwaves through the architectural world when it was first completed, and has remained an icon of American residential modernism ever since. Lovingly portrayed by Japanese architectural photographer Yukio Futagawa, the house, its galleries of artworks, outlying studio, and pavilion on the pond all come alive through refined qualities of light and the natural setting. Moreover, Kengo Kuma contributes an essay in which he describes his impressions of meeting the architect and the first encounter with his famous house.
