15 Learning from Las Vegas, 1972 Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown and Steven Izenour Learning from Las Vegas marked the historical origin of postmodern architecture. The book created a controversy in 1972 by calling for architects to be more receptive to the vernacular, the tastes and values of "common" people, and less immodest in their erections of "heroic," self-aggrandizing monuments. "A roadway could become a city. A building could become a sign. In no place at all, someplace could be created. That is Las Vegas' genius.“ from Learning from Las Vegas Gropius, Bauhaus, , an icon of International Style modern architecture
