|Richard Foster House
|The Richard Foster House is also known as the Round House, the Rotating House and the Carrousel House. The designer, Richard T. Foster, referred to it as the Circambulent House. Foster was a partner of Philip Johnson. The two-bedroom house was built from 1966-1968. Its wiring allows for preset, 360 degree rotation of the house to change the views and sun exposure throughout the day. The entrance is via a steep spiral staircase and the building overlooks a pond.
