about

Since it was first published in 1972, Learning from Las Vegas has become a classic in the theory of architecture and one of the most influential architecture texts of the twentieth century. The treatise by Robert Venturi (*1925), Denise Scott Brown (*1931), and Steven Izenour (1940–2001) enjoys a reputation as a signal work of postmodernism in architecture and urban planning. Yet none of the book’s editions have ever featured high-quality color images of the field research the authors conducted to illustrate their argument. Las Vegas Studio is the first book ever to present these significant photographs in large color reproductions.

Now available again in a new paperback edition, this unique book features 102 of these iconic images and film stills, alongside essays by Swiss scholars Stanislaus von Moos Martino Stierli that explore how the pictures contemplate the phenomenon of the modern city. Also included is a discussion by curator and critic Hans Ulrich Obrist with Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and Swiss artist Peter Fischli that speaks to the strong and lasting influence these images still have on contemporary art and movies.
A unique opportunity to experience the full intent and import of the Learning from Las Vegas project, Las Vegas Studio continues to appeal to architects, architectural historians, and scholars alike.
Hilar Stadler is director of Museum im Bellpark in Kriens, near Lucerne, Switzerland. Martino Stierli is the MoMA’s Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design.

Editorial Reviews

"Technicolor and definitively 1960s, the photos — mostly documentary, some seemingly random or incidental — portray architects Venturi, Scott Brown and Steven Izenour (the book’s third author who died in 2001) in the field with the Yale students and at leisure. There are also shots of a Las Vegas that is no longer here. The result comes across as a private scrapbook or intimate photo album, a fond memento of the experience and of the time."
