Video: Robert Venturi

In this two part video film maker John Thornton, a.k.a Rusty Scupperton, reconsiders what post-modernism is all about, as made popular by Robert Venturi.  Through a series of interview of Venturi’s colleagues and excerpts from the architect himself, Thornton gets a better understanding of the architect’s influence and sense of humor in regards to architecture.

Catch part two after the break!

Venturi is considered the father of Post Modernism and helped popularize the style with his book Learning from Las Vegas.  You can read an interview with Robert Venturi and his partner Denise Scott Brown here: Interview: Robert Venturi & Denise Scott Brown, by Andrea Tamas and read up on one of Venturi’s most famous building: The Vanna Venturi House
