The leading lady of Venturi, Scott Brown, and Associates in Philadelphia, Denise Scott Brown met her husband and partner, Robert Venturi, while teaching urban planning—and concurrently earning a master’s degree in architecture—at the University of Pennsylvania. Together they learned from Las Vegas, but her interest in education didn’t end there. Scott Brown has since lectured at Yale and Harvard, among others, and devoted herself to planning and designing intellectual institutions around the world.
