No other American houses of the mid-century years have come to capture the fantasy of living in transparent glass as the three glass houses which will be celebrated in a special presentation at Sotheby’s New York: Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House, Philip Johnson’s Glass House, and Paul Rudolph’s Walker Guest House. All constructed within two years of each other and designed by architectural legends, these are among the most admired, influential and memorable homes of the 20th-century. Each one marked extraordinary moments in the careers and legacies of their respective architects.
