Description

The Shingle Style embodied intellectual pluralism and cultural democracy--ideals fundamental to American belief and developed quickly and richly. After a period of reaction against the Shingle Style, it was revitalized, finding its first fully renewed expression in 1959 in a design for a beach house by Robert Venturi. Vincent Scully details this reemergence, revealing the complex and crucial role of influence in the shaping of this movement.
