Modern Views

Modern Views: A Project to Benefit Farnsworth House and the Glass House "invited some of our era’s top creative minds to continue one of the twentieth century’s great cultural dialogues: the historic exchange reflected in the Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Farnsworth House (1945–51) and the Philip Johnson Glass House (1949)."

Modern Views from Drew Harty on Vimeo.
"One hundred contemporary artists, architects, and designers created and donated works of art and written statements, capturing their inspiration about these iconic buildings and the architects who created them. Published in an illustrated book by Assouline in Fall 2010, these contemporary works are presented alongside original construction drawings of both houses, an introduction by New Yorker Architecture critic Paul Goldberger, a candid interview with Phyllis Lambert, and an essay by Sylvia Lavin. Two exhibitions and events featuring a live auction and the premiere of Sarah Morris’ new film inspired by Farnsworth House and the Glass House are being held in Chicago at the Arts Club on September 16 and then in New York at Sotheby’s on October 6, 2010."
