Wall Street Journal visits the sleekly modern Maison de Verre:

Every old city has magical hidden places, often unknown. Tucked into a courtyard in Paris’s chic 7th arrondissement, invisible to public view, sits one of the icons of 20th-century design, La Maison de Verre, Pierre Chareau’s 1932 glass house. Commissioned by Dr. Jean Dalsace for himself and his family, it has been owned since 2006 by an American with a passion for architectural conservation and the mechanical sleekness of modernism. – from WSJ
