Description: Robert Venturi & Denise Scott Brown are among the world's leading contemporary architects. Their writings, including the seminal books Complexity & Contradiction in Architecture (1966 Venturi) & Learning from Las Vegas (1972; Venturi, Scott Brown, & Steven Izenour), have profoundly influenced architectural thought in this century. The built work of the firm Venturi, Scott Brown & Associates of Philadelphia has had an equally great impact. Through a commitment to a creative understanding of history & the everyday environment & to the use of visual references in the design of building, this firm has changed the face of modern architecture. Guild House (1963), the Vanna Venturi House (1963), & Franklin Court (1976), all in Philadelphia, are key examples of a new outlook on the art of building. This landmark monograph-assembled in collaboration with the architects-illustrates the firm's work since 1986. In his main text, Stanislaus von Moos analyzes the architects' understanding of tradition in relation to the social & urban complexities of our post-industrial, multicultural era. Featured are acclaimed buildings such as the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery in London (1991); the Seattle Museum of Art (1992); buildings for such universities & colleges as Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania, Harvard, UCLA, & Dartmouth; & new works, including the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art (1996), the hotel & recreation center in Nikko Kirifuri, Japan (1997), & the administration building for the Departement de la Haute-Garonne in Toulouse, France.
