Abstract

The rapidly growing city of Las Vegas, Nevada - with more than 2 million residents, 40 million annual tourists and an acute desert climate - provides one of the most compelling design laboratories in the world. This lecture re-examines well-known strategies of sustainable urbanism in practice today and explores the unique ways in which these strategies are practiced in the Las Vegas Valley.
