It was just right. The right people, the right amount (so many that people couldn't get in), and the right time (just as fashion week is starting). check out the september issue HERE

philip johnson's glass house

You know how I like lists, so I'll give you a few bullet points.
1. It was like walking into The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. Which was quite nice considering that is one of my favorite books.
2. I felt my heart leap when I saw Frank Stella's Raft of the Medusa. The Raft of the Medusa by Theodore Gericault is one of my favorite works of art, I was able to see it in the Louvre in Paris about 8 years ago. I was so excited to see this homage to it in real life as well. The impression I had upon seeing it was similar to seeing the original. The grandeur, the anger, the attention to detail, and the emotional effects were all there.
3. The Glass House seemed like an architects playground. There isn't just one house on the premise, there are about 7 dwellings, each with a different function. (FUN right?) 4. Philip Johnson's creative freedom and genius came out of affluence. I don't feel like that really exists anymore. However, if one of us was a genius and a millionaire, it would be as if summer never ended. We would be brave to try new things, we would make many more memories with the Andy Warhols of today, and hopefully we would make history.
