Las Vegas Studio will be on show at the Bellpark Museum in Kriens in canton Lucerne until March 2009.

It is the first public viewing of Learning from Las Vegas, a research project on symbolism in architecture carried out in 1968 by post-modernist Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown and Steven Izenour.

The work went on to influence the way modern cities were seen and subsequent urban research projects, the Bellpark Museum notes.

The collection includes images and films taken during the research project and since stored in archives belonging to the architectural firm Venturi, Scott Brown & Associates in Philadelphia.
