Continuing the Conversation: A Philip Johnson Glass House & MFA Interaction Design Partnership

The MFA in Interaction Design at the School of Visual Arts is committed to providing students with unique and exciting opportunities beyond the walls of the studio. A recent partnership with the Philip Johnson Glass House will further this commitment to six of its inaugural students in an engagement that will challenge each student with a variety of opportunities.

This past week, the student team was invited to the Glass House in an “immersion trip” to better understand the historical significance of Philip Johnson and his vision for the Glass House. They were joined by faculty mentor, Jason Santa Maria, and department chair, Liz Danzico.

During the afternoon, the team met with the Glass House staff to discuss the vision for the new project. Using the collection of valuable content captured from past conversations in the Glass House, the team knew they were beginning a very special undertaking. Check back frequently over the course of the next few months to see what the student team will be doing to “continue the conversation.” The team will be live-blogging the project’s progress.
