...the house in Absecon. ...group elevation of all the domestic architecture. ...a composite 3-d grouping of houses. ...the Canton, Ohio buildings, as well as maybe the Yale Mathematics building.

Exhibit Graphics: Inspiration IX
Dominican Motherhouse axonometric and plan of the design in context. ...the buildings in a row as if they were on individual display. Or replace the Kahn buildings with other buildings from Quondam's collection, i.e., keep same motherhouse footprint but use buildings of a similar size and program, e.g., St. Pierre for the church/chapel, Houses under a Common Roof for the dormitories; Museum of Knowledge or Museum for Nordrhein Westfalen pavilion for the administration tower. Also check out scale comparison of Hurva Synagogue, Villa Savoye, Altes Museum, Gooding House.

Re: Robert Venturi
I'm beginning to see a lot of Venturi et al architecture and design as 'mod'. Not Modern, not Post-Modern, not (just) Pop--specifically mod.
The Princeton Memorial Park tower is very mod, as is the Mr. and Mrs. Gooding house of a decade later.
Venturi, like Stirling, is a mod colorist (for sure), a distinct rarity within 20th century architectural history.

For a very clear display of Venturi et al's work in the context of the POP era (1956-1968) see Les Annees Pop, the catalogue of the exhibit going by the same name held at the Centre Pompidou 15 March to 18 June 2001. Here, each year is displayed by what was produced in it. Unfortunately (for some like me) all the text is in French, but there are lots of images.

Consumerism and Monumentality
You know, this house actually is a bit of a 'spin-off' of a Lutyens designed garden pavilion. I can't remember the name of the Lutyens house, Great something-or-other, I think.

The wall of Wall House 2 has been replaced with the main facade of the Gooding House, Venturi and Rauch, Absecon, 1977.

Depth
"The whole aesthetic notion of POP Art flatness (as best described in xxxx) is an aesthetic that Venturi still to this day strives ardently toward in many aspects of his designs. This 'style' is rarely, if ever, discussed within the plethora of writing on or by Venturi, yet it is definitely a substantial part of Venturi's design psyche. ...offers lots of actually working examples of the quest for flatness in the design process, and then we inevitably agree that it is somehow amazing that hardly anyone (else) knows about this very integral component of Venturi's style."
--QBVS2, p. 50.

Ugly Architecture (purposefully so)
Part II of Learning from Las Vegas is entitled "Ugly and Ordinary Architecture, or the Decorated Shed" with a specific essay therein entitled "Heroic and Original, or Ugly and Ordinary".
Regarding the architecture of FAT, the Gooding House* may be a major precedent.
*designed 1977, same year as the publication of The Language of Post-Modern Architecture where the image at the bottom of page 115 offers an interesting coincidence.

What would happen if you mix two master architects with opposing styles?
Le Corbusier - Venturi




Court entry house at Gledstone Hall.


The raised urns at the court entry houses of Gledstone Hall may well be the inspiration for the flattened raised urns within the facade of the Gooding House.
