Summary:
Architect Robert Venturi writes to Professor Naomi Miller at Boston University regarding Miller's review of Venturi's book for the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians "to tell you how very much I enjoyed and appreciated it." He discusses the controversy surrounding the book and his belief that his work has a "peculiarly abrasive effect on my peers, especially those who advise would-be clients on the commissioning of architects; and my difficulties finding work seem to grow in proportion with my reputation." He concludes by invitating Miller to view a small exhibition of his firm's (Venturi and Rauch, Architects) work at the Philadelphia Art Alliance.
