Robert Venturi’s Rome : Talk and Book Signing by Frederick Fisher and Stephen Harby
Robert Venturi's Rome is a guidebook to the city of Rome as seen through the eyes of Robert Venturi and his classic text, Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture, by two subsequent Rome Prize fellows and architects, Frederick Fisher and Stephen Harby.
Fisher and Harby take the reader on a journey back through time by visiting and discussing the Roman buildings and places that exemplify Venturi's revolutionary ideas. The buildings and what they meant to Venturi are re-examined with the perspective of fifty years of architectural advancements. The volume is full of imaginative and analytical watercolor illustrations painted exclusively for the book and inspired by the small black and white illustrations in Venturi's work.
