Venturi Scott Brown and Associates (VSBA) is known for combining design elements in unexpected ways; an approach that has spurred some to include Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown among the founders of architectural Post modernism.


Though they reject the Post- modernist label, Venturi and Scott Brown are guided by design principles that contrast sharply with Modernism's tendency to pare structures to essentials: turning the Modernist's rallying cry "Less is more" against itself, Venturi declared "Less is a bore."  The firm has become known for an eclecticism that draws freely from varied sources, such as historic design styles and popular culture, including contemporary commercial architecture and advertising.

In the past three decades, his works have ranged from cups and saucers to major buildings that are or will become landmarks. In his hometown, he is designing a new Philadelphia Orchestra Hall. On Trafalgar Square in London, a major addition to the National Gallery of Art will soon be opened. Halfway around the world in Washington State, the Seattle Museum of Art will soon be finished. Down the coast to the University of California at Los Angeles, a new Medical Research Laboratory has just been completed.

Many of his projects are for institutions of higher learning, including his alma mater, Princeton, where he has numerous completed projects, among the most recent being the Fisher/Bendheim Halls. Other buildings are found on the campuses of Oberlin College, University of Pennsylvania, Shippensburg University and Dartmouth College. Info source: www.pritzkerprize.com
