Pursuing this goal, she spent her summers working with architects until she studied in South Africa at the University of the Witwatersrand from 1948 to 1952. She briefly entered liberal politics, but was frustrated by the lack of acceptance of women in the field and desired more contemporary theory. Lakofski traveled to London in 1952, working for the modernist architect Frederick Gibberd.

  • Denise Scott Brown, (nacida Denise Lakofski) (Nkana, Zambia, 3 de octubre de 1931) es una arquitecta postmoderna, urbanista, escritora y profesora. Experta en planificación urbana y docente en universidades como Berkeley, Yale y Harvard, escribió en 1972 en colaboración con Robert Venturi y Steven Izenour Aprendiendo de Las Vegas: el simbolismo olvidado de la forma arquitectónica, uno de los libros más influyentes en arquitectura en la segunda mitad del siglo XX. Está considerada como la arquitecta más famosa de la segunda mitad del siglo XX. Se casó con Robert Venturi en 1967 y trabajaron juntos desde 1969, sin embargo en 1991 fue excluida del premio Pritzker lo que provocó su protesta y el debate sobre las dificultades de las mujeres arquitectas para ser reconocidas en su profesión. Finalmente, se les otorgó de manera conjunta la Medalla de Oro del AIA 2016 convirtiéndose en la segunda mujer de la Historia que gana el galardón más prestigioso del mundo de la arquitectura y en la primera mujer viva que recibe este galardón. Es socia del estudio de arquitectura Venturi, Scott Brown y Asociados de Filadelfia (Estados Unidos) que, en 2012 tras la jubilación de Venturi se convirtió en VSBA Architects & Planners.

  • Born to Jewish parents Simon and Phyllis (Hepker) Lakofski, Denise Lakofski had the vision that she would be an architect from the time she was five years old. Pursuing this goal, she spent her summers working with architects until she studied in South Africa at the University of the Witwatersrand from 1948 to 1952.
