Our Firm’s History
VSBA, LLC, is the successor firm to Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates, Inc., which was founded by Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown. Our principals and staff build on our founders’ philosophy — an ethic rooted in social planning, contextual design, and responsibility to our clients — to offer design that’s sensitive, pragmatic, and creative.
After over fifty years as two of the world’s preeminent architects, Robert Venturi has retired from practice while Denise Scott Brown continues to publish and present her work.
