Cover of Learning from Las Vegas (revised 2nd edition) by Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour (1977, The MIT Press)

Learning from Las Vegas, a seminal architecture book that has appeared in 12 languages worldwide, was first published in 1972, with a second edition issued in 1977. Our drawing honors the 45th anniversary of the groundbreaking 1968 Yale studio course taught by Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown that prompted the book.

Our interview with Denise Scott Brown will appear on Designers & Books on January 7.
