Las Vegas' CityCenter Tries Its Hand at 'Architecture and Urbanism'

New, 14 comments

How about a morning jaunt to Vegas today? The $7.8 billion just-launched CityCenter development is only "one of the biggest developments in the history of mankind." No, seriously. It's certainly been billed the biggest private one in American history. The conglomeration of glittery buildings resembles a modern city center (and thus the name!) and features the work of big-name architects Cesar Pelli, Daniel Libeskind, Rafael Viñoly, Helmut Jahn, KPF, and Norman Foster. 'Course, it's Vegas, so you know, the usual everything applies. One thought from A/N Blog: "It’s a great accomplishment for Las Vegas to finally highlight contemporary architecture instead of theme-based pastiche (Paris, Venice, Luxor, etc. etc) or high end luxury (Bellagio, Wynn, etc). This place doesn’t have a theme, but the closest two are architecture and urbanism. Who knew?"
