People In Urban Glass Houses Throw Parties

Party like it’s 1906

Any day is a good day to celebrate the life of the sleek Philip Johnson, but July 26 will be perfect. The developers of his final project, The Urban Glass House, are throwing a soiree “to celebrate the building’s completion.” And, lest you’ve already forgotten, it will be the late Mr. Johnson’s 100th birthday.

If the Giorgione hors d’oeuvres at 330 Spring Street don’t make you feel good, then surely the $50,000 donation for the restoration of the real Glass House (up in New Canaan) might do the trick.
