Fog at Glass House

glasshse1

Celebrating the 65th anniversary of Philip Johnson‘s iconic Glass House, artist Fujiko Nakaya has created the building’s first ever site-specific art installation. The installation, titled “Veil”, will shroud the glass house in fog for 10 minutes every hour, creating a dialogue with Johnson’s design intentions by breaking the visual connection between inside and out, and covering the building’s sharp, clean lines with misty indeterminacy. At the same time it will make literal Johnson’s ideal of an architecture that vanishes.
