South Africa, New York, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Yugoslavia or California are different places where Denise Scott Brown went and took photographs. The fifth exhibition of The Architect’s Album series is a collection of these photographs, entitled “Denise Scott Brown. Travelling with Denise”.
Denise Scott Brown is an architect, urban planner, writer, professor and partner at Venturi ‐ Scott Brown & Associates in Philadelphia. This architectural studio is considered one of the most influential of the 20thcentury. Their built work, academic activity, and published books, including “Learning from Las Vegas” (1972), co-written with Steven Izenous, are a benchmark of contemporary architectural culture.
Among the many awards she has received are the Design Mind Award (2007), the National Medal of Arts, the United States Presidential Award (1992), and the Athena Award of the Congress for the New Urbanism (2007).
In 1991, the Pritzker Prize jury awarded the prize to her husband and partner Robert Venturi, but she was excluded. Despite protests from very important sectors of the profession and the statements of Robert Venturi himself claiming that Denise was the author of more than 50% of the studio’s work, the jury did not rectify.
