The Library of Philip Johnson: Selections from the Glass House will function as a resource for the general public and for professional architects and designers, providing access to a selection of the ideas and images that shaped Philip Johnson’s contribution to American modernism. “The Glass House is honored to be the first recipient of Birch Books Conservation’s generosity. This publication not only brings important scholarship to the study of Philip Johnson and twentieth century design but also provides critical funds earmarked for the conservation of books contained in the Library/Study,” states Rena Zurofsky, Glass House interim executive director. “We are deeply grateful for Birch Books Conservation’s support,” she continued.
