The Vanna Venturi house been widely recognized as one of the most important works of the internationally distinguished American architect, Robert Venturi. The house has also rightly been characterized as one of the most significant architectural commissions of post-World War II world wide. Vincent Scully, the renowned American architectural historian, famously called the house the “biggest small building of the second half of the twentieth century.” Physically and metaphorically, Scully’s description of the house is precise. For half a century, the Vanna Venturi house, which is small in size but large in scale, has exerted outsized influence on architectural design and theory, both domestically and internationally. Widely proclaimed as the building that changed the trajectory of Modernism and led to Post-Modernism, the house excites and provokes, as much as for its exceptionalism as for the novel theory that informed its design and that continues to influence contemporary architecture.
