Venturi's projected City Hall for North Canton, Ohio, shows how his architecture also has a connection with the late work of Sullivan and so with the seepest untapped force of American vernacular experience as a whole. This is surely Venturi's largest achievement in American terms, that he opens our eyes again to the nature of things as they are in the United states--in the small town no less than in New York--and that out of our common, confused, mass-produced fabric he makes a solid architecture; he makes an art.
