Venturi, Robert; Denise Scott Brown; Steven Izenour
Learning From Las Vegas.
The MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 1972. First edition of this groundbreaking work. Folio, original blue cloth with illustrated frontispiece, illustrated throughout. Signed by both Robert Venturi (who has added a large drawing of Venturi's Mother's House) and Denise Scott Brown. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. "Their insight and analysis, reasoned back through the history of style and symbolism and forward to the recognition of a new kind of building that responds directly to speed, mobility, the superhighway and changing life styles, is the kind of art history and theory that is rarely produced. The rapid evolution of modern architecture from Le Corbusier to Brazil to Miami to the roadside motel in a brief 40-year span, with all the behavioral esthetics involved, is something neither architect nor historian has deigned to notice" (The New York Times). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books, ABAA/ ILAB [Palm Beach, FL, U.S.A.]
