Robert Venturi’s Book List

These books have been signposts and guides to us [meaning Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown] in the evolving of our ideas. The later ones are good examples, intriguing to us, of how others are taking our thought further. The selections from our own writings (see “Books by . . .” for both Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown)—were chosen to show what we derived from what we read. The list of books we have written and our book list below should be examined together.
