What Houzz contributors are saying:

Yet even as the orthogonal and hard edges of the Glass House and its manicured lawn sit in opposition to the larger landscape, the relationship between house and nature is important. Here is the view from the house toward the small lake, where Johnson later added a Lakeside Pavilion (1962) and beyond that the Lincoln Kirstein Tower (1985). The latter is a climbing sculpture that supposedly has an inscription at the top, one that cannot be uttered to others once read. (Unfortunately the NTHP is not willing to let visitors climb it.)
