Revolver, by Richard Foster, Philip Johnson's Collaborator

For fans of modern houses,
this one is interesting, to say the least: a revolving house, on a pedestal, with a view of the suburban countryside in Wilton, Connecticut. It was built by Richard Foster, who worked on a lot of projects with Philip Johnson. Foster in fact lived there until his death, in 2002.

Love it!

It has that whole 'Monsanto House of the Future' vibe.

Saw this home on HGTV. The inside is absolutely beautiful... When filming the show, they included portions of the surrounding countryside, including a local road leading up to the home. This road was lined with stone walls, reminiscent of my native Connecticut. Since I missed the beginning of the show, I didn't know where the home was located. I was pleasantly surprised to see I was right in surmising it was the Connecticut countryside. Home sweet revolving home!
