NY TIMES T MAGAZINE / Rockefeller Guest House

March 4, 2017

In 1948 Blanchette Rockefeller, a patron and president of the Museum of Modern Art, commission Philip Johnson to design her a house to display art and entertain friends. The Rockefeller Guest House was completed one year after The Glass House in New Canaan. Nestled on East 52cnd Street, it remains his only residential project in New York City. I had made snap shots of it’s street facade over the years while passing but was always curious of what lay within. Excited when the New York Time’s T Magazine recently commissioned me to photograph it and make a short film. Both out in T’s current Design issue and the Time’s web site.
