The Shingle Style embodied intellectual pluralism and cultural democracy—ideals fundamental to American belief and developed quickly and richly. After a period of reaction against the Shingle Style, it was revitalized, finding its first fully renewed expression in 1959 in a design for a beach house by Robert Venturi. Vincent Scully details this reemergence, revealing the complex and crucial role of influence in the shaping of this movement.
Vincent Scully has been widely honored as one of the most gifted historians and critics of architecture. He is Sterling Professor Emeritus of the History of Art at Yale University and Distinguished Visiting Professor at the University of Miami. Other publications include The Shingle Style Today (2003) and Frank Lloyd Wright (1960).
