The house that started it all: Philip Johnson's Glass House in New Canaan. He and David Whitney used to invite great minds from the architecture, design, and art worlds to the house for evenings of discussion and debate. When the Glass House opened to the public in 2007, its programmers continued the invite-only tradition.  Photo 3 of 3 in Elaine Lustig Cohen Scarf for Hermes from Glass House Conversations
