Description

Learning from Las Vegas created a wholesome controversy on its look in 1972, calling for architects to be extra receptive to the tastes and values of “commonplace” folks and not more conceited of their erections of “heroic,” self-aggrandizing monuments.

This revision comprises the entire texts of Section I of the unique, at the Las Vegas strip, and Section II, “Unpleasant and Strange Structure, or the Embellished Shed,” a generalization from the findings of the primary Section on symbolism in Structure and the iconography of city sprawl. (The general a part of the primary adaptation, at the architectural paintings of the company Venturi and Rauch, isn’t integrated within the revision.) The brand new paperback adaptation has a smaller structure, fewer photos, and a significantly cheaper price than the unique. There are an brought preface by means of Scott Brown and a bibliography of writings by means of the contributors of Venturi and Rauch and concerning the company’s paintings.
