Venturi's own house

image above is beautiful inspiring image of Scott Brown and Venturi’s home.

Something splashed across the design news today   that I think is a critical move in the advancement of women in any professional field.  Denise Scott Brown asked for the Pritzker Prize that her husband was awarded in 1991. Robert Venturi received the award even though the couple had founded and practiced architecture and urban planning  together for 22 years. At the time the Pritzker institution maintained that they did not give joint prizes. With Ms Brown request I think all people gain one more step for equality, let’s hope the Supreme Court continues that thought.
