This program celebrates how two icons of modern architecture, the Philip Johnson Glass House and the Mies Van der Rohe Farnsworth House, continue to inspire and cajole conversation and debate about architecture and design.

“I produced Architecture & Influence as part the Philip Johnson Glass House Oral History Project for use on their web site and in their visitor center. Working with Project Director, Dorothy Dunn, we interviewed Norman Foster, Michael Graves. Charles Gwathmey, Richard Meier, Jaquelin T. Robertson, Richard Rogers, Vincent Scully, and Robert A. M. Stern–individuals for whom Philip Johnson was mentor, sponsor, and friend. I was responsible for selecting excerpts from the oral history interviews, selecting imagery, and scripting and editing the program in collaboration with Dorothy Dunn.” Drew Harty
