In addition to commissions for houses and apartments, he has worked extensively on building preservation, adaptive use and preservation planning. Several projects have also included the design and planning of landscapes and gardens. His experience in preservation includes serving as project architect for the restoration of Franklin Roosevelt's house in Hyde Park, New York and, as both project architect and construction manager, for the restoration and adaptive use of the Heurich Mansion (Headquarters for the Historical Society of the District of Columbia) in Washington. The Heurich project won an American Institute of Architects Merit Award for "design sensitivity and craftsmanship". In 1988, Michael Glynn (with the Office of Thierry Despont) developed a master plan for the Frick Foundation to convert Henry Clay Frick’s Pittsburgh estate into a museum. In 1990 through 1992, he served as consulting architect for the restoration of the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ War Memorial and Auditorium, part of the capitol complex in Trenton, New Jersey.In 1994 through 1996, Michael Glynn was the architect (in collaboration with Austin Patterson, Architects) for the Historical Society of Greenwich, Connecticut. This project included long-range planning for the Society, the restoration of the historic landscape at the Society’s headquarters in Cos Cob, and the conversion of one of their historic buildings for use as a visitor center. In 1995, for the Simsbury Historical Society in Simsbury, Connecticut, he prepared a comprehensive architectural and engineering study of their historic buildings and museum facilities; this commission included long-range planning options for both the site and the structures. Mr. Glynn prepared a study in 1995 for the adaptive use and restoration of an Adirondack-style building located in the town of Westport’s Longshore Park, the former Stranahan estate in Westport,Connecticut. He also served as consultant in 1996 to the Historic New England Endowment Foundation for the Endowment’s effort to relocate and restore the Eno Mansion, an early Colonial-Revival house on Long Island Sound in Westport. Michael Glynn was the Connecticut Trust’s consultant in 1997 for the conservation and preservation of a “library-retreat” that was designed in 1938 by Edward Durell Stone for Frank Altschul’s estate in Stamford, Connecticut. In 1998, Mr. Glynn prepared construction documents for the conservation and repair of an important Modern house in New London, Connecticut that was designed by Ulrich Franzen in 1959. And in 2000 he prepared documents for the restoration of the glass-block-enclosed dining room of the (1935) Richard Mandel House in Bedford Hills, New York. Designed by Edward Durell Stone and Donald Deskey, and with the site designed by Michael Rapuano, the Mandel House is one of the most important examples of early International-Style buildings in the United States. Mr. Glynn helped preserve two important mid-century Modern houses in Litchfield County, Connecticut: the Gagarin residence (1954) by Marcel Breuer, and the Crone residence (1948) by architect, Henry Hebbeln and landscape architect, James Rose. In 2006 and 2007 he aided the Paul Rudolph Foundation in their efforts to prevent the destruction of two significant Rudolph-designed houses: the Micheel residence (built in 1971) in Westport, Connecticut and the Cerritto residence (1956) in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. In 2010 Michael Glynn – along with Morley Boyd and Kim Elstein - installed their architectural exhibit, “Westport Modern” at the Westport Historical Society. This survey of significant modern houses (circa 1930 to circa 1970), located in Westport and Weston, Connecticut, received extensive praise. Michael Glynn was the photographer and writer for the exhibit. The Ronemus Residence in Westport, Connecticut (the adaptive use of a 1912 service station and several outbuildings, and the restoration and expansion of a Greek Revival house) won the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation’s 2009 Merit Award. Other residential work includes designs for houses in Virginia, Connecticut, New York, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Michael Glynn places strong emphasis on the integration of buildings and landscape. His landscape design for the Timken Residence on Nantucket won an award in 1993 from Garden Design, published by the American Society of Landscape Architects. Mr. Glynn has been a member of the Historic Buildings Committee of the A.I.A. New York City Chapter. He is a member of the Society of Architectural Historians and also of the Association for Preservation Technology. He served on the Westport, Connecticut, Historic District Commission from 1994 to 1998. He is a registered architect in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. He is also a member of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, which allows him to practice throughout the States.
