Philip Johnson's Glass house is insanely inspiring. Set on 47 acres of land in New Canaan Connecticut, the property has 6 separate main structures and endless amount of beauty. Johnson built the Glass House for himself, and added elements like 2 galleries and a library to create a more entertaining, functional environment and a great place to gather his friends like Andy Warhol. My friends Maggie and Shana and I visited the grounds for an architecture tour and needless to say, we were very impressed.
