Vanna Venturi House
Robert Charles Venturi built the Vanna Venturi House for his widowed mother in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia in the early 1960s. The house is simple in appearance, complex in plan, and rich in traditional elements.
 
The heart of the home, the chimney, is placed in the center. The house appears basically symmetrical, but some features, like the windows, are offset. On the outside, Venturi combined historic architectural elements like a gable, door, lintel, arch, and windows in a design that is plainly modern, yet also strongly traditional.
 
Robert Venturi was born in Philadelphia in 1925. His parents passed on to their son their own interest in architecture and design. In 1950, Venturi graduated from Princeton University with a master’s degree in fine arts. He worked under several architects before beginning his own practice.
 
Reacting against Mies van der Rohe’s principle that “less is more,” Venturi rejected the sterility he saw in International Style modernism. Instead, he declared that “less is a bore.”
 
As a teacher, writer, and architect, Robert Venturi encouraged the return of symbolism, historic features, and applied decoration to architectural design.
