Learning from Las Vegas, originally published by the MIT Press in 1972, was one of the most influential and controversial architectural books of its era. Forty years later, it remains a perennial bestseller and a definitive theoretical text. Aron Vinegar literally reopens the book on architectural postmodernism. By reading Learning from Las Vegas as philosophy, not irony, Vinegar reaches out from American architecture in the 1970s to address architectural theory at large. It is a beguiling intervention.

Learning from Las Vegas, originally published by the MIT Press in 1972, was one of the most influential and controversial architectural books of its era. Thirty-five years later, it remains a perennial bestseller and a definitive theoretical text. Vinegar's close attention to the graphic design of Learning from Las Vegas, and his fresh interpretations of now canonical images from the book such as the Duck, the Decorated Shed, and the "recommendation for a monument," make his book unique.

Learning from Las Vegas is a 1972 book by Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour. In March 1968, Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown wrote and published A Significance for A&P Parking Lots, or Learning from Las Vegas (Architectural Forum, March 1968).

Rereading one of the most influential architectural books of the twentieth century―as intellectual project, graphic design landmark, and prescient introduction to issues of concern today.

Learning from Las Vegas, originally published by the MIT Press in 1972, was one of the most influential and controversial architectural books of its era. Forty years later, it remains a perennial bestseller and a definitive theoretical text. Its authors―architects Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour―famously used the Las Vegas Strip to argue the virtues of the "ordinary and ugly" above the "heroic and original" qualities of architectural modernism. Learning from Las Vegas not only moved architecture to the center of cultural debates, it changed our ideas about what architecture was and could be.

In this provocative rereading of an iconic text, Aron Vinegar argues that to read Learning from Las Vegas only as an exemplary postmodernist text―to understand it, for example, as a call for pastiche or as ironic provocation―is to underestimate its deeper critical and ethical meaning, and to miss the underlying dialectic between skepticism and the ordinary, expression and the deadpan, that runs through the text.

Especially revealing is Vinegar's close analysis of the differences between the first 1972 edition, designed for the MIT Press by Muriel Cooper, and the "revised" edition of 1977, which was radically stripped down and largely redesigned by Denise Scott Brown.

Aron Vinegar's book remains an important and unique contribution to the theoretical interpretation of visual and architectural postmodernism. Not only is it an engaging read, but I find it useful in the classroom for introducing students to Heidegger's philosophical thought as it relates to visuality and experience.
