Scott Brown, Denise

Scott Brown, Denise (1931– ). Zambian-born American architect (née Lakofski). Educated in South Africa, London, and the USA, she worked with numerous architects, and married Robert Venturi in 1967 with whom she had collaborated since 1965. As a partner of Venturi, Rauch, & Scott Brown from 1980, and principal in charge of urban planning and design, Venturi, Scott Brown, & Associates, since 1989, she made a considerable contribution to the success of the firm, and has had a distinguished academic career. She influenced Venturi's Learning from Las Vegas (1972) in which the idea was promulgated that simple sheds with applied decorations and large signs were more appropriate exemplars for the time than International Modernism.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
