Philip Johnson House Resurrected


In the fall of 2008, Victoria Lyon of Victoria Lyon Interiors in Old Greenwich, CT., invited a group of artisans, artists and furniture makers to collaborate on bringing an empty Philip Johnson modern house back to life and showcase it as an example of how a small but iconic mid-century modern house could be adapted for life in the 21st century.

A number of remarkable artists, including some whose work has been exhibited at the MOMA, the Met and the Louvre, contributed their work.

The houses now stands as a reminder of the importance of saving modern architecture which continues to be threatened by the proliferation of the McMansions that replace them.
