Item Description: MIT Press Ltd, United States, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Rereading one of the most influential architectural books of the twentieth century -- as intellectual project, graphic design landmark, and prescient introduction to issues of concern today. Learning from Las Vegas, originally published by the MIT Press in 1972, was one of the most influential and controversial architectural books of its era. Forty years later, it remains a perennial bestseller and a definitive theoretical text. Its authors -- architects Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour -- famously used the Las Vegas Strip to argue the virtues of the ordinary and ugly above the heroic and original qualities of architectural modernism. Learning from Las Vegas not only moved architecture to the center of cultural debates, it changed our ideas about what architecture was and could be.In this provocative rereading of an iconic text, Aron Vinegar argues that to read Learning from Las Vegas only as an exemplary postmodernist text -- to understand it, for example, as a call for pastiche or as ironic provocation -- is to underestimate its deeper critical and ethical meaning, and to miss the underlying dialectic between skepticism and the ordinary, expression and the deadpan, that runs through the text.Especially revealing is Vinegar s close analysis of the differences between the first 1972 edition, designed for the MIT Press by Muriel Cooper, and the revised edition of 1977, which was radically stripped down and largely redesigned by Denise Scott Brown.

Item Description: MIT Press Ltd, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. revised edition. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. 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. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9780262720069

"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).

Item Description: The MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 1972. Cloth with Pastedown. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First Edition. 190pp, 182 color and 243 b&w illustrations. Designed by John Rauch. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Published in 1972, "Learning from Las Vegas" firmly solidified Robert Venturi's place as one of the leading theoretical practitioners of the new wave of American architects. Authored in collaboration with his future partners Denise Scott Brown and Steven Izenour, and taking inspiration from Ed Ruscha's "Every Building on the Sunset Strip", the preface of what is perhaps the single most influential architectural text of the second half of the twentieth century states "The first part of this book is a description of our study of the architecture of the commercial strip. Part II is a generalizationon symbolism in architecture and the iconography of urban sprawl from our findings in Part I. Part III describes the work of Venturi and Rauch from 1965 to mid-1971, reflecting the theories of Part II". An internally exceptionally bright, most handsome example of the uncommon first MIT Press hardbound printing (featured on pages 36-39 of Jeffrey Brouws, Wendy Burton and Hermann Zschiegner's "Various Small Books: Referencing Various Small Books by Ed Ruscha") limited to two thousand unnumbered copies lacking the publisher's fragile printed vellum dust jacket whose gilt-stamped titles are still bright showing some mild external wear along with rubbing to the grey cloth of the rear cover. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

The class was called "Learning from Las Vegas, or Form Analysis as Design Research." There were thirteen students in total. In the end, their work would comprise the basis for the landmark architectural work Learning from Las Vagas, authored by Venturi, Brown, and Izenour, but compiled, researched and photographed by the students themselves "The first part of this book is a description of our study of the architectur of the commercial strip. Part II is a generalization on symbolism in architecture and the iconography of urban sprawl. Part III describes the world of Venturi and Rauch from 1965 to mid-1971.". Bookseller Inventory # 933

Item Description: MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 1972. First edition of this groundbreaking work. Folio, original blue cloth with illustrated frontispiece. Signed by both Robert Venturi (who has added a drawing of Venturi's Mother's House) and Denise Scott Brown. Boards lightly rubbed; in near fine condition. Lacking the rare glassine dust jacket. A very sharp copy. "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).
