Postmodernist legend Robert Venturi dies, aged 93


I am very sad to read that Robert Venturi has died , he was a wonderful empathetic intelligent person . I worked for his firm Venturi and Rauch ( 1964 - 1989 ) in the late sixties , his partner Denise Scott Brown formed the practice of Venturi Scott Brown Associates in 1989 ( VSBA ) when John Rauch left , who had been the managing Principal for the previous 25 years , John Rauch went on to be a painter . The office in the sixties was a very inspirational place to be ,Robert or Bob , as he was affectionally known , had works of Alvar Aalto and several books on Edwin Lutyens open and laid out in the middle of the drawing studio which he referred to constantly with his usual wit and intelligence , this " education " had a profound effect on me . A wonderful person will be greatly missed .
