Those Who Have Glass Houses...
should give tours.

The notorious/elegant Glasshouse by Philip Johnson will go on tour soon, according to the New York Times.

The idea of this house might sound silly at first. But when you realize that it was built to be on an a large, secluded estate, it is not as crazy one might think. The idea of a living space which visually opens up to nature (blurring the boundry between architecture and nature) is quite appealing. Kind of a garden-city idea, if you ask me.
