Iconography and electronics upon a generic architecture : a view from the drafting room by Robert Venturi( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Venturi's 'Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture' and 'Learning from Las Vegas' (the latter coauthored with Denise Scott Brown and Steven Izenour) are among the most influential books by any architect of our era - the one celebrating complexity in architecture, the other the uses of symbolism in commercial and vernacular architecture and signage. This new collection of writings in a variety of genres argues for a generic architecture defined by iconography and electronics, an architecture whose elemental qualities become shelter and symbol. Venturi, who along with his partner, Denise Scott Brown, made the vulgar acceptable and found virtue in the commercial, the kitsch, and the ordinary, is respected equally as a theorist and an architect who communicates his architectural ideas, formal and verbal, with grace and wit. These essays, letters, reports, lectures, manifestos, and polemical texts offer a candid, uncensored view from the drafting room, commonsense responses, urgent and diverse, of a busy architect, in part a reaction against the conceptualizing of architecture today invaded by other disciplines and made obscure. Seven of the essays were coauthored with Denise Scott Brown. The voice is personal, eloquent in expounding on the unglamorous side of practice; sometimes vituperative and corrective in addressing clients, theoreticians, and critics; often amusing and humorous in looking back on past projects and opportunities; instructive in describing early influences and tasts; and reflective in assessing his own impact on the profession. The lead essays can be described as an argument embracing reference and representation in our information age, whose technical basis is truly of our time and whose iconographic basis derives from a long tradition in architecture including hieroglyphic Egyptian pylons, early Christian basilicas, scenographic Baroque interiors, and even eclectic Romantic architecture and twentieth-century electronic signs and displays. The essays include Venturi's 1950 M.F.A. thesis, published here for the first time - a work that foreshadows many of the themes that were later to make him a controversial and ground-breaking architect and writer - and a series of vintage Venturi aphorisms"--Back cover
Architecture as signs and systems : for a mannerist time by Robert Venturi( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The views of Venturi and Scott Brown have influenced architects worldwide for nearly half a century. Pluralism and multiculturalism; symbolism and iconography; popular culture and the everyday landscape; generic building and electronic communication are among the many ideas they have championed. Here, they present both a retrospective of their life work and a definitive statement of its theoretical underpinnings." "Architecture as Signs and Systems is a must for students of architecture and urban planning, as well as anyone intrigued by these seminal cultural figures."--Jacket

Sir John Soane : an English architect, an American legacy( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All great art engages in a dialogue with the past. Architecture is no exception, as this film shows in its examination of the legacy of Sir John Soane (1753-1837), an English architect of rare genius whose influence on a generation of America's foremost architects is profound ... This film investigates both the influence of antiquity on Soane, following in his Grand Tour footsteps through Rome and Sicily, as well as the ways his stripped-down classical style helped guide the American architects out of the strictures of Modernism."--Container

Aprendiendo de las Vegas : el simbolismo olvidado de la forma arquitectónica by Robert Venturi( Book )

16 editions published between 1978 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1968, un grupo de tres profesores y varios estudiantes de la escuela de arquitectura de la Yale University emprendieron un viaje a Las Vegas con el fin de llevar a cabo un proyecto de investigación sobre el análisis formal de la arquitectura de la peculiar ciudad del estado de Nevada. El resultado se materializaría cuatro años más tarde con la publicación de Aprendiendo de Las Vegas, un libro que agitó el mundo académico del momento y supuso un punto de inflexión radical en la historia y la crítica de la arquitectura. Siguiendo la estela de la tradición de libros de viajes escritos por arquitectos, Aprendiendo de Las Vegas documenta e investiga la dispersión urbana y los métodos de representación de la capital del entretenimiento. Venturi, Scott Brown e Izenour estudiaron detenidamente el simbolismo de una ciudad que había crecido en medio del desierto de Mojave a una velocidad jamás vista hasta entonces, una ciudad espejismo cuyas vallas publicitarias de neón y la extraordinaria baja densidad urbana conformaban, especialmente de noche, una suerte de espacio urbano de ficción. Con su análisis los autores ampliaron el uso dado hasta entonces a las formas de comunicación de la arquitectura y pusieron por vez primera el foco de atención en cuestiones que se consideraban ajenas al mundo de la arquitectura: el descubrimiento de lo trivial y la belleza de lo ordinario. Considerado como uno de los grandes manifiestos de la posmodernidad en arquitectura, Aprendiendo de Las Vegas es uno de los textos más influyentes de la teoría de la arquitectura de la segunda mitad del siglo xx
