Learning From Las Vegas!

Learning From Las Vegas by Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown is the seminal "introducing postmodernism" text that kickstarted an entire movement in words, images and architecture. Humour, chaos, subversion, wit and pluralism is what followed: the postmodern ethos, aesthetic and way of life for a generation that didn't even know it!

These images build upon The People's Print tutorials demonstrated at the V&A on October 21st 2011. They introduce layering, plagiarism, bricolage, chaos, futility and humour in design in true postmodernist style!
