New Canaan, CT - The Glass House. The famous Glass House, created by American architect Philip Johnson, is one of the most significant structures of the 20th century. An object of fascination for decades, the rectangular house was built in 1949 out of quarter- inch-thick glass and without interior walls. Absent of curtains or blinds, the property’s 47 acres of trees and landscaping are the house’s only source of privacy.
