Named a national historic landmark in 1997, The Glass House "is one of the most famous houses in the United States," according to The New York Times architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff. Celebrated for its innovative use of materials and seamless integration in the landscape, The Glass House remained Johnson's residence until his death in 2005.
