As partners in one of the most influential architectural design and planning firms of the last half-century, Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown have been often credited as the founders of postmodernism. The Philadelphia Museum of Art's latest exhibition, Out of the Ordinary: The Architecture and Design of Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown and Associates, traces their design past with some 250 models, photographs, videos, furniture, objects, and drawings (such as the sketch of the National Gallery's Sainsbury Wing in London, shown below). On view through August 5th, the show also features a dramatic multi-media installation the firm created specifically for the exhibition.
