Hosted in London's Hippodrome Casino and inspired by classic postmodern text by Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour, Learning from Las Vegas In London presents an evening of symbolism, ornament and excess. This event will unravel the boundaries of taste, set in the heart of the capital, featuring talks, performances and films that will explore the book's legacy and London's aesthetics and architecture. Key curators, architects, designers and academics will examine our love affair with postmodernism and its origins in a city that has become an international symbol of extravagance.

 

The event will feature contributions from:

 

Ginger Johnson

Owen Hopkins, Sir John Soane's Museum

The Venturi, Scott Brown Collection

Sam Jacob

Adam Nathaniel Furman

Studio Mutt
