MODERN HOUSE


Stone went on to design a group of houses for Mr. and Mrs. Henry Luce and also worked on Carl Koch's parent's home where he used cloistered gardens to protect the home visually from the Victorian homes of Cambridge surrounding it. In 1937, Edward Durell Stone designed the New York Museum of Modern Art, the first international modern building in New York. The member's lounge had a wall of glass with a wide opening to a roof terrace. This became the prototype of New York penthouses and museum plans. Twenty years later, he incorporated the same design for the master bedroom opening to the peristyle with domed skylights in the Park Lane residence
