Name, first nameSteigerYear of birth1984UniversityHEADField of Interest / research fieldSpatial DesignTitle of projectLearning from LEARNING FROM LAS VEGASAbstractThe field of my interest for my master thesis is the book Learning from Las Vegas1 from Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown. I intend to make a comparison of two phases of Las Vegas' history concerning the signs in relation to the architecture. The two phases are the time when the first publication of the book came out and the situation of today. I would like to show how Venturi made us look differently at the relationship between architecture and signs and I try to find an answer for following research questions:
Looking at the commercial strip of Las Vegas, how did the relationship between the architecture and the sign evolve from the time when the book Learning from Las Vegas came out compared to today, due to new technologies, new typologies of cities, economical or political issues?
