An architectural icon passed away this week. Robert Venturi passed away on September 18th at the ripe old age of 93. Along with several built masterpieces his influence on generations of architects was widespread through his written works with partner Denise Scott Brown, including Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture and Learning from Las Vegas.
While we mourn the loss of a great talent, it’s an opportunity to reflect on and be inspired by the tremendous body of work he produced.
