Water Pore Partnership
For architects, particularly American architects, Las Vegas is something of an enduring enigma, an absurdity that has to be confronted at some point or another. It looms there in the back of many a practitioner’s mind, or at least it does for those given over to self-aggrandizement or historical role-playing. The inflicted can blame Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown, who polemicized the Strip’s cavalcade of infantile trappings and fuddy T-bone gigantism. But as four decades separate us from the quaint world ofLearning from Las Vegas, what is there left to glean from this incorrigible place?
