On 27 October 2019 the Iconic Houses board was thrilled to welcome its charter members for its Leadership Circle Launch at the award-winning GLUCK+ Tower House in the Catskills, New York. This is a curated support group of individuals who share a passion for modern architecture and believe in its power to inspire. By their generous donations they significantly impact the Iconic Houses Network’s ability to achieve its mission.

Through the Leadership Circle’s support and that of fellow members, the work of the Network in identifying and sharing often forgotten modern architectural masterpieces throughout the world, creating a forum where home owners can learn from experts in the field and each other, and working to save threatened buildings will continue.

Architects Peter and Thomas Gluck welcomed our guests at the Bridge House and gave us a personal tour of the house. Then there was the opportunity to explore the site and experience three other GLUCK+ buildings; the Scholar’s Library, the Little House, culminating in a lunch at the Tower House with its magnificent views. A visit of a 5th creation by our hosts, the nearby Barn with Aedicule, completed the event.
We thank Peter and Tomas Gluck for their generous hospitality!
