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

14 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 487 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 )

13 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 442 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 by Murray Grigor( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 225 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. Among them, Henry Cobb, Michael Graves, Philip Johnson, Richard Meier, Robert Stern, Denise Scott Brown and Robert Venturi, all acknowledge their debt to Soane and his idiosyncratic reinterpretations of the architecture of antiquity. This film investigates the influence of antiquity on Soane by following his Grand Tour footsteps through Rome and Sicily, as well as the ways in which his stripped-down classical style helped guide American architects out of the strictures of Modernism. Exquisite footage of Soane's masterpieces, including of his residence museum in London and the Dulwich Picture Gallery, is intercut with detailed views of works by the Americans, including Philip Johnson's Guest House, Richard Meier's Getty Museum, Michael Graves' own residence and Newark Museum renovation, Henry Cobb's Payson Building of the Portland Museum of Art as well as the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery in London, designed by Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown. Through interviews and guided tours, these architects, along with architectural historians, Charles Jencks and Christopher Woodward, offer unique insight into the ways in which their works refract the genius of Soane.
