"People Who Live in Glass Houses:" the Starchitect Version

New, 2 comments

Colorado-based cartoonist (and, incidentally, orthodontics student) Grant Snider has turned the old "glass houses" adage into a clever series of illustrations depicting famous midcentury works of architecture. Above: cheeky renditions of Philip Johnson's Glass House and Mies' Farnsworth House. "My architect brother informed me that Mies van der Rohe was known for his innovations in steel and glass, not wood," writes Snider. "So just to clarify: those are MUTANT beavers." Below, find the artist's version of Villa Savoie, by Le Corbusier, and, of course, Fallingwater.
