The Glass House x Yayoi Kusama

In September this year there was a fantastic art-meets-architecture collaboration between Philip Johnson’s famed Glass House & the uber successful Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.  

After checking your stuff at the gift shop, a shuttle bus drives you to the Glass House in New Canaan,CT

First thing you see is a severe looking gate 


Good thing the weather was perfect 

Then we approached the glass house on foot–the architect designed the house to slowly reveal itself in an undulating fashion 




Normally the house has clear glass walls but artist Yayoi Kusama is famous for her polka dot installations and so had covered the house in bright red polka dots

It was breathtaking!
