NEW CANAAN, Conn. --  The Glass House in New Canaan will conduct Conversations in Context from May through November in which visitors can learn more about the site’s legacy.

Hosts of this season's Conversations in Context series include Peter Brant, Elizabeth Diller, Peter Eisenman and Cynthia Davidson, Murray Moss and Francois de Menil, Annabelle Selldorf, Bjarke Ingels and James Welling. Visitors will explore the Glass House compound during evening tours hosted by luminaries from the fields of architecture, design and the arts.

Since the 1940s, the Glass House has served as a place of inspiration, education and conversation across creative disciplines. Its 49-acre landscape, 14 architectural structures and world-class art collection continue to draw members of an international creative community to engage with its rich legacy.

Conversations in Context invites leaders from creative fields to reflect on the site's past, present, and future, and to contribute their perspectives on the Glass House and its significance to contemporary debates.

The Glass House is a site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Conversations In Context is supported by Oldcastle Building Envelope, a leading supplier of building envelope solutions in North America. Additional support is provided by Nat and Lucy Day.

Events take place from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on select Thursdays throughout the tour season, which runs from May 2 through Nov. 30. Conversations in Context tickets ($150 per person) may be purchased online or via phone at 866-811-4111. Space is limited.
