Instead of Burning It Down, David Byrne Tours a House (Philip Johnson’s Specifically)

What do musician David Byrne and Philip Johnson’s Glass House have in common? Besides maybe that they are both comprised of matter, there’s little similar. However, the two recently came together as Byrne visited the just opened house and he’s written a lengthy piece about it on his blog. Typical of Byrne, if you’re familiar with his writing, it’s beautifully put together and very insightful, ranging from info about the house itself and what he saw while touring, to diverting into other areas of design and architecture. It’s maybe even the best reading tour we’ve yet taken of the place, but granted, that could be some bias sneaking in there and influencing our decision. The man is David Byrne after all.
