This glass house art installation by Fujiko Nakaya will be covered in a disappearing and reappearing dense fog. The house was initially designed in 1949, but now it will be used in a more picturesque way.

The original glass house by Philip Johnson leaves almost nothing to the imagination. The home is a one level house with glass walls surrounding it, making the project entitled 'Veil' even more beautiful from the inside or outside.

There has never been a site-specific project for the glass house, so this installation is one-of-a-kind. The fog will appear for 10 minutes every hour, and dissipate as easily as it appears. All the fog will be fresh water-based and pumped through 600 nozzles around the home.
