Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture after fifty years - 04.12.2017

Princeton Alumni News’ April 12, 2017 issue includes an article that Gary Wolf FAIA wrote about the 50th anniversary of the ground-breaking book, Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture, by Robert Venturi.  
C & C broke decisively from the a-historical trends of mid-century, and developed the principles of a design methodology drawing inspiration from architectural history as well as from context—themes important in Princeton’s influential architectural program when Venturi studied there, and continuing in Gary’s time.
