summary This studio sought to examine the unique representational phenomena ofthe city through the design proposal of a Hotel + Experience for Las Vegas. Students were asked to craft their own “realities” - project and program- from research on a series of topics: From all-things-Disney to corporatebranding; from World’s Fairs to themed environments and utopiancommunities; from simulation and synthetic environments to surface, skinand computer graphics concepts. Students drew upon Vegas culture andthe particularities of site (and non-site) to develop proposals which furtherexplored issues of identity construction, consumption and production, andimage in popular culture.
