The "Philadelphia School" consisted of a group of architects (including Louis I Kahn, Robert Venturi, Denise Scott-Brown and Romaldo Giurgola) who were developing a resentment to the Modern Movement in the 1960's. Their ideas and works would lead to the development of what would be known as Postmodernism. I wasn't able to get as many of the shots as I wanted due to lighting issues so I will have to come back....

One of the few that came out, an illustration of Robert Venturi's "Learning from Las Vegas":

Some recent high rise projects by Scott Erdy are also shown Erdy claims influence from the Philadelphia School in shaping many of his projects....
