I don't like the voice of the architec

Pure poetry in architecture and design that is the icon of Johnson's work. What insipid, vacuous twit would be empty enough to admit that they didn't like the architect's voice after seeing this architectural wonder? Is that all they got out of this? The Philistines, they do walk among us.

can someone identify the stool Paul Goldberber is sitting on in the last minute of this piece?

Extremily encourage design ,Thanks

David, I've reached out to the Glass House to ask them about the stool Paul Goldberger is sitting on. At that point in the video, we were in the Painting Gallery, located on the property. I'll let you know what I hear back. -DWR

I'm pretty sure the stool is by Poul Kjærholm.

We've confirmed this with the Glass House and Paul Goldberger is sitting on a PK33 stool, designed by Poul Kjaerholm in 1958 and manufactured by E. Kold Christensen until 1980. Since 1982, the design has been licensed to and manufactured by Fritz Hansen. -DWR

Thanks!
