Architect Robert Venturi

Notable American Architect Robert Venturi recently passed away at the age of 93. For me he was a household name and figure I grew up with having driven by a local fire station he designed almost everyday in my youth in Columbus, Indiana. 

The New York Times wrote this week: For much of the 20th century, “serious” architects, led by Le Corbusierand Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, favored unadorned surfaces and strictly geometric forms. But in his treatise “Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture,” published in 1966, Mr. Venturi argued that ornament, historical allusions and even humor had a place in modern architecture. The book was a retort to Mies’s assertion that “less is more.” “Less is a bore,” Mr. Venturi wrote.

Modernist Monday

Images of North Korea | Enjoy this interesting peek into a seldom seen country. Take a look at some of the images here and for a bit more peek at some of the book pages here. The pastel brutalist style of some of the buildings is very unique to North Korea. Cheers and Happy Monday!

 

“The book offers a rare glimpse inside the Hermit Kingdom, Guardian journalist and photographer Oliver Wainwright takes us on an architectural journey behind closed doors in the world’s most secretive country. From the mosaic-lined lobbies of Soviet-era health centers to the candy-colored interiors of brand new theaters, his photographs shine a spotlight on the reclusive regime’s ambition to “turn the whole country into a socialist fairyland.”
