You may have noticed; as much of the consumer buying public did, that clothing company J.Crew placed the photo shoot for their last catalog on the immaculate grounds of the

If you didn't get enough modern design love from that, there are a few more design gems from that period in architecture that are still standing.
Phillip Johnson Glass House
This building, known as Da Monsta, is the visitor center at the Philip Johnson Glass House site. The site also includes numerous constructions by Johnson in a few different styles.
The National Trust for Historic Preservation has acquired two new modern-era designed buildings, the Philip Johnson-designed Glass House and the Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Farnsworth House. Both houses can be seen in this month's (May/ June) issue of the organization's Preservation magazine which discusses a new appreciation of Modernism in terms of architecture and the need for on-going protection.
Other modern masterpieces around the country include:
A Rudolf Schindler House
Philip Lovell House
