Dressing Up the Glass House: A New Book by Diller Scofidio + Renfro


You may know Diller Scofidio + Renfro for the High Line in New York or the much-anticipated Broad museum in Los Angeles. But the firm does small, independent projects, too. A commission from the Deste Foundation for Contemporary Art was one such endeavor. Elizabeth Diller, advised by Valerie Steele, director and chief curator of the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and Dennis Freedman, creative director for Barneys New York, staged a fashion shoot at Philip Johnson’s Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut. After she and her team selected shoes, glasses, and other accessories for the models, they assumed their poses inside and outside the 1949 landmark. The results, intended to pay tribute to the photography of Interior Design Hall of Fame member Julius Shulman, have now been compiled as a book, The Look.
