Learning from Las Vegas author Steven Izenour dies

  • Comment

Steven Izenour, a principal at Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates, has died suddenly aged 61.

Izenour was a co-author of the seminal 1968 work Learning from Las Vegas, and designed the exhibition which revealed the practice's design for the Sainsbury Wing extension of the National Gallery in London.

Izenour's design for his parents' house on Long Island Sound was exhibited at the Pompidou Centre in Paris in 1982 and earned him an 'Honor Award' from the National Institute of American Architects.

'He earned an international reputation for combining a vast and visionary knowledge of the signs and symbols of the American landscape with an extraordinary design ability and technological expertise within environmental and historical contexts. These skills lent a critical component to VSBA's architecture and urban design, ' said a statement from the Philadelphia-based practice.
