There are plenty of jokes to make about the Philip Johnson Glass House. You can go for the obvious with some joke about not throwing stones (because the house is made of glass, get it?) or act more refined by throwing out a Howard Roark reference ("Ayn Rand would love this house"). But you can't laugh at Christy MacLear, who has been revitalizing the late architect Philip Johnson's estate. Listen as she talks about it for the Bob James Memorial lecture, 7 p.m. Thursday at the Dallas Museum of Art, 1717 N. Harwood St. Tickets are $20. Visit dallasarchitectureforum.org.
