    About The Work

    Aperture is pleased to release this very special limited-edition print from Denise Scott Brown, in celebration of Aperture #238, “House and Home.” Proceeds from the sale of Aperture’s limited-edition prints support the artists and provide critical funding for Aperture projects—including Aperture magazine, our books, and educational, online, and public programs—now more than ever. 

    This photograph—with its wonderfully indulgent hues and maximalist, iconic signage—encapsulates the architecture, atmosphere, and pop culture that drew Scott Brown’s interest to the rapidly growing city of Las Vegas in the 1960s. Scott Brown returned to and photographed the bedazzled subject of this piece, the Stardust Resort and Casino, multiple times between 1968 and 1971. In 1972, together with fellow architects Robert Venturi (to whom she was married) and Steven Izenour, Scott Brown coauthored the groundbreaking book Learning from Las Vegas, a seminal work that explores the roles of symbolism and communication in architecture, setting the tone for architectural research for the decades that followed.  In Aperture #238, Scott Brown discusses how photography has long been a key element of her approach to architecture and urban design.
