Last minute holiday shopping? Who isn’t a fan of Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown? Whether you like Rome, Las Vegas, or Levittown, you can find something useful from the duo. They are famous for quips like, “You don’t have to like something to learn from it,” and “I can like something worse than you can like.” Venturi even called himself “The Dennis the Menace of Architecture.” Now you can get all the fun ’60s and ’70s architectural debauchery delivered to your house, with the Learning from Bob and Denise store, online now with merchandise fit for a minor league sports team.
The Lieb House, Robert Venturi’s second commission and once in danger of demolition, will soon be en route to its new location, but by sea, not by land. After a bit of resistance from Glen Cove town council, the house has been cleared to travel by barge to its new site in the Long Island town.
