The Glass House has appointed architectural historian Hilary Lewis as Chief Curator and Creative Director. “I’m thrilled to return to the Glass House,” says Lewis, who served as the site’s Philip Johnson Scholar in 2007. “Having sat side-by-side with Johnson for years, I feel confident that what would honour his and David Whitney’s memory most would be for the property to evolve further as a centre for the appreciation of architecture, design, and art.”
Lewis met Johnson in 1992 while studying Architectural History and Urban Planning at Harvard. After co-authoring two books, ‘The Architecture of Philip Johnson‘ and ‘Philip Johnson: The Architect in His Own Words‘, recipient of the AIA International Architecture Book Award, she curated the 2008 show ‘Philip Johnson: Architecture as Art’ at the Johnson-designed Kreeger Museum in Washington, DC.
