10 Venturi, Robert, Scott Brown, Denise and Izenour, Steven Learning from Las Vegas: the Forgotten Symbolism of Architectural Form

Revised edition. Softcover. Condition: Very good, with light shelfwear. No inscriptions. 192pp. 146 b/w illustrations.

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 generalisation 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.
