Revised edition. Softcover. Condition: Very good, with light shelfwear. No inscriptions. 192pp. 146 b/w illustrations. Originally published in 1972, Learning from Las Vegas created a healthy controversy on its appearance, calling for architects to be more receptive to the tastes and values of the "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 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.
