Venturi house for sale: education required

  • Comment

The iconic Postmodern house that Robert Venturi designed for his mother has gone up for sale. The Vanna Venturi house in Philadelphia has a hefty price tag of $1.75 million.

The house, which has gone on sale for the first time since it was completed in 1964, was immortalised on a 2005 US postage stamp.

The estate agent’s description states: ‘To the amateur eye it can be puzzling, but with some education about its juxtaposition of traditional design against more complex forms, its status as a groundbreaking residential design becomes clear.’
