Glass House + Noyes House
September 11, 2017
Participants on this half-day study tour will have the chance to visit two seminal works of mid-century residential architecture: Philip Johnson's Glass House (1949) and the Eliot Noyes House (1954). Both in New Canaan, and both designed as the architects' personal residences, the tour offers an opportunity to evaluate each architect’s rigorous adherence to design principles, keen awareness of site and landscape, historic references and more. The tour will be led by Fred Noyes, FAIA, the son of Eliot Noyes. Presented by the Glass House.
Monday September 11, 1:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Begins at the Glass House Visitor Center
