Dust jacket notes: "The house that Robert Venturi designed for his mother in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, and had built in 1964, is arguably the most architecturally influential building of the second half of the twentieth century. Here, Robert Venturi reflects on this seminal building from a distance of over a quarter of a century. He discusses why its style and form, once so revolutionary, are accepted now. Equally important, he reminisces about 'how hard it was for me, as its author, to arrive at.' This book presents for the first time all of the developmental drawings that were executed to accompany the six stages of the design. Also included are the original construction drawings, historical photographs of the house, and a series of models, which are now in The Museum of Modern Art in New York...."
