The Glass House as a Queer Space

November 15, 2019

The Glass House in New Canaan, CT, famously sheltered its architect Philip Johnson (1906–2005) and his partner, the curator David Whitney, in a relationship that began before the Stonewall rebellion. This event, presented by the Center for Architecture and The Glass House, brings together a panel of scholars and practitioners who will discuss the Glass House as “queer space” and consider the ways in which architecture and design shape queer identities.

Moderated by:

This program is presented by the Center for Architecture and The Glass House.
