About this Item: MIT Press Ltd, United States, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. Learning from Las Vegas created a healthy controversy on its appearance in 1972, calling for architects to be more receptive to the tastes and values of "common" people and less immodest in their erections of "heroic," self-aggrandizing monuments.This revision includes the full texts of Part I of the original, on the Las Vegas strip, and Part II, "Ugly and Ordinary Architecture, or the Decorated Shed," a generalization from the findings of the first part on symbolism in architecture and the iconography of urban sprawl. (The final part of the first edition, on the architectural work of the firm Venturi and Rauch, is not included in the revision.) The new paperback edition has a smaller format, fewer pictures, and a considerably lower price than the original. There are an added preface by Scott Brown and a bibliography of writings by the members of Venturi and Rauch and about the firm's work. Seller Inventory # BTA9780262720069

About this Item: MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 1977. Revised edition. Ocatvo, original illustrated wrappers as issued. Signed by both Robert Venturi and Denis Scott Brown. In fine condition. "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).

About this Item: Cambridge: MIT Press, 1972, 1972. First Edition. An exceptional copy of an exceptional book, probably the most important architectural publication of the last fifty years, often described as the manifesto of architectural post-modernism. A fine copy in the printed tissue dust jacket, showing only slight wear; in a custom clamshell box. The book's design was widely praised at that time, as well as since. If not for the seismic influence of the work itself (although not universally accepted, given controversy and disagreement over its observations, conclusions, and view), it would be celebrated for this alone. All books described as first editions are first printings unless otherwise noted. Seller Inventory # 37785
