Curiosities: The architect Denise Scott Brown was born in 1931 in Zambia, at the time a British protectorate. She began her professional training in South Africa and concluded it in London, after passing by the United States to perform a master's degree. In the United States, she made the most part of her works in partnership with her husband and also architect, Robert Venturi. She worked in various projects of architecture and urbanism to American universities and has written the book "Learning from Las Vegas: the forgotten symbolism of architectural form." Denise Scott Brown has, throughout her career, worked together with her husband, but nevertheless in 1991 he was the only one that received the Pritzker Prize for architecture - despite the work of both have been fundamentally collaborative. The lack of recognition of Denise generated great commotion and anger, especially from her husband who, when receiving the award, said that the involvement of Scott Brown in the works was primordial. After the awards, he started a battle for her to be included in award.
