The Glass House
October 15, 2015

Los Angeles-based architects Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee are joined by Josef Helfenstein (The Menil Collection) and Martino Stireli (The Museum of Modern Art) for a conversation about the Menil Drawing Institute, the 1951 Philip Johnson-designed Menil House, and the display of art in domestic spaces.

Johnston Marklee, led by principals Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, is recognized internationally for its engagement with contemporary art practices while being deeply rooted in the history and foundations of architecture.

Josef Helfenstein served as the director of the Menil Collection, managing all aspects of the institution’s operations and development, and initiating the strategic plan and master site plan that have led to the current project to enlarge and enhance the 30-acre campus.

Martino Stierli is The Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and holds a Swiss National Science Foundation Professorship at the Institute of Art History at the University of Zurich.
