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.

Speakers:
Donald Albrecht, Independent curator
Alice Friedman, Wellesley College
Thomas Mellins, Independent curator
Joel Sanders, FAIA, Yale University

Moderated by:
Cole Akers, The Glass House
Hilary Lewis, The Glass House

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