From the Publisher. A collection of writings by Robert Venturi in a variety of genres arguing for a generic architecture defined by iconography and electronics, an architecture whose elemental qualities become shelter and symbol. The essays include Venturi’s 1950 M.F.A. thesis, published here for the first time—a work that foreshadows many of the themes that were later to make him a controversial and groundbreaking architect and writer—and a series of vintage Venturi aphorisms.
