Robert Venturi, founding principal of VSBA, derives his reputation from both his architecture and theoretical and critical writings. His most recent book, written with Denise Scott Brown and published by Harvard University Press, refers to Mr. Venturi and Ms. Scott Brown’s contributions as “[having] influenced architects worldwide for nearly half a century.”

Mr. Venturi’s major work includes a provincial capitol building of the Haute-Garonne in Toulouse, France; the Mielparque Nikko Kirifuri resort hotel near Nikko, Japan; the Sainsbury Wing of the National Gallery in London; additions to the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; the Seattle Art Museum; and recently, conceptual design of two high-rise offices in Shanghai; major expansions to Lehigh Valley Hospital; a chapel for the Episcopal Academy near Philadelphia and designs and documents for a new wing for the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia.

VSBA has engaged in over 70 academic projects for over 30 institutions of higher learning, including labs for the University of Kentucky, Princeton, Penn, Michigan, UCLA, UC Santa Barbara, and Yale; libraries at Dartmouth, Penn, Bard, and Harvard’s Dumbarton Oaks; and campus centers for Princeton, Dartmouth, Penn, Delaware, Harvard, and Swarthmore. VSBA’s architecture and planning are known for particular responsiveness to the client’s program, schedule, and budget and to the building’s context, accommodating a distinctive aesthetic for each project.

Mr. Venturi’s teaching, lecturing, and writing have received widespread attention and critical review. Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture (Museum of Modern Art Press, 1966) has been translated and published in 18 languages, including a Samizdat edition in Czechoslovakian. It has been honored with the AIA’s Classic Book Award. It and Learning from Las Vegas (with D. Scott Brown and S. Izenour 1972) are still in print. Mr. Venturi’s awards include the Pritzker Architecture Prize (1991) and the Presidential National Medal of the Arts (1992).

DENISE SCOTT BROWN,
RIBA, Int. FRIBA

Click here for PDF of Denise's full curriculum vitae

Denise Scott Brown is an architect, planner and urban designer and a theorist, writer and educator whose projects and ideas have influenced designers and thinkers worldwide. Working in collaboration with Robert Venturi over the last half century, she has guided the course of Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates by serving on the broad range of the firm’s projects in architecture, and as Principal-in-Charge of urban planning, urban design and campus planning. Her experience in interdisciplinary work, teaching and research has contributed to VSBA’s breadth and depth in architectural design.

Scott Brown made plans for South Street and Old City, Philadelphia, Jim Thorpe PA, Princeton Borough NJ, Miami Beach FL, and Memphis TN. She has written and advised on New York’s World Trade Center site, Philadelphia’s Penn’s Landing, the Bouregreg Valley in Morocco, and the city of New Orleans and was Principal for VSBA’s programming of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian.

She conducted master planning for the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Michigan, and area planning studies for Dartmouth, Bryn Mawr and Williams Colleges; the Radcliffe Institute of Advanced Studies at Harvard University: and Kentucky, Brown and Tsinghua (Beijing) Universities. She evolved precinct plans and conceptual designs for architecture projects that grew from these studies, at Dartmouth (Baker-Berry Library), Penn (Perelman Quadrangle), Kentucky (Biomedical/Biological Sciences Research Building) and Michigan (Life Sciences Institute, Undergraduate Science Building, and Palmer Commons). She then continued on design teams for these and other major architecture projects, including the Sainsbury Wing of the British National Gallery; Mielparque resort in Kirifuri National Park, Japan; and the Département de la Haute-Garonne provincial capitol building in Toulouse, France.

Scott Brown held architecture and planning professorships at the Universities of Pennsylvania, Harvard, UCLA, UC Berkeley and Yale, and visiting positions at Rice, Oberlin, UC Santa Barbara and Princeton. Her research projects, Learning from Las Vegas (1972; revised edition 1977, with Robert Venturi and Steven Izenour) and Learning from Levittown (1970 with Robert Venturi) investigated the emerging automobile city, the relation of social and physical in architecture and urbanism, and the role of symbolism and communication in architecture. Their techniques have influenced the evolution of architectural research over the last forty years.

She has lectured extensively and published in professional journals and the architectural press. Her books include Learning from Las Vegas (1972; revised edition 1977, with Robert Venturi and Steven Izenour); The View from the Campidoglio (1984 with Robert Venturi) Urban Concepts (1990); Architecture and Decorative Arts, Two Naifs in Japan (1991 with Robert Venturi); Architecture as Signs and Systems for a Mannerist Time (2004 with Robert Venturi) and Having Words, London: Architectural Association, 2009.

After attending the University of Witwatersrand and graduating in architecture from the Architectural Association, London, she received master’s degrees in architecture and city planning from the University of Pennsylvania. Twelve institutions have awarded her honorary doctorates; she has been a Fellow at Princeton’s Butler College and has served as overseer or advisor at, inter alia, MIT, Penn, Carnegie Mellon, Temple, Washington and Harvard Universities. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Philosophical Society, and an International Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects. She has been awarded The Vilcek Prize (2007), the US National Medal of Arts (1992), the Royal Society for the Encouragement of the Arts’ Benjamin Franklin Medal (1993), the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture’s AIA Topaz Medallion (1996), Italy’s Commendatore of the Order of Merit (1987), the Chicago Architecture Award (1987) and Harvard's Radcliffe Institute Medal (2005).
