Stierli, Martino.
Las Vegas in the Rearview Mirror: The City in Theory, Photography, and Film.
This study undertakes a historical and critical inquiry into Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour's Learning from Las Vegas and tries to situate it within postwar architectural and urban discourse. Unlike other studies on the topic, particular emphasis is given to analyzing the role of visual media such as photography and film, not only for their representation of urban form, but also as epistemological tools with regard to architectural research. Through the translation, findings will be made accessible to an English-speaking audience. Las Vegas in the Rear-View Mirror hopes to substantially further the understanding of this seminal urban study and the consequences of its methodological implications for contemporary architectural research.
