Las Vegas in the Rearview Mirror
The City in Theory, Photography, and Film
Martino Stierli
Las Vegas in the Rearview Mirror

Learning from Las Vegas, published in 1972 by the architects Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour, marks the turn in architectural theory from modern to postmodern. Martino Stierli explores the significance of this controversial publication by situating it in the artistic, architectural, and urbanist discourse of the 1960s and '70s, and by evaluating the book's enduring influence on visual studies and architectural research.

Installation art is an evolving, often ephemeral medium that defies rigid categorization. It has also radically transformed the concepts of space, time, and the experience of art. The conservation field is faced with unique challenges over how best to manage and preserve the essence of these works. This volume is the English edition of the first book published in Italy to address the history and conservation of installation art.
