Glass House Conversations

Glass House Conversations (glasshouseconversations.org) builds on the legacy of Philip Johnson (1906-2005) and David Whitney (1939-2005), who brought people from diverse backgrounds together to shape the cultural dialogue of the 20th Century. The Glass House (philipjohnsonglasshouse.org) extends this salon through the Conversations program series, including Glass House Conversations, the public moderated dialogues online, Conversations in Context, evening events at the Glass House, and the earlier Glass House Conversations, on-site exploratory talks. Glass House Conversations: The Glass House invites a guest host from across the creative disciplines of architecture, art, design, landscape architecture and preservation. Hosts post a question or debate topic, and responders worldwide have one to four weeks to join the online conversation.
