Glass House Collective is currently represented in the NYC Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum as a part of the exhibit: By the People: Designing a Better America. Right now, GHC Executive Director, Teal Thibaud, is visiting NYC with co-founder Katherine Currin this weekend to mark the opening of the exhibit. They were pleasantly surprised to find photos about Glass Street featured in the New York Times.

It came as a huge and humbling honor for the GHC co-founders to see their How To Guide document along with a photo display and stools from Zachary Reynolds of Woodwise Urban Designs exhibited along with a stunning array of designers and community development and place-making initiatives from across the country.
