My daughter turns four tomorrow, so today my wife and I took her with some friends to a farm on Long Island for strawberry picking. On the way we just had to stop by The Big Duck, a famous roadside attraction that Robert Venturi and gang popularized in Learning from Las Vegas. Here is the spread where the authors outline the argument of the Duck versus the Decorated Shed; the duck is modernist form as meaning, while the shed is signage communicating meaning. It's a familiar argument that I won't go into here. Instead I'll just post some pics from the brief visit.
