Looking forward to reading this, after I meet my deadline. As an aspiring young architect in New Canaan (NCHS '76,) I remember climbing the 6'+ stone wall that surrounds the property, just to see the house. The deadline part should tell you, I became an Architect.

Thanks for the article. I liked the house at first sight. The design is very attractive. Architect Johnson spent a lot of time, money and effort to put his estate design into reality.

I was fortunate to meet Philip Johnson in Dallas, Texas. He designed the chapel for our church, The Cathedral of Hope which was completed in early 2000. There are still his plans for a large structure on the property, but the funds were never raised.
