FEATURES:
Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown changed the way we think about Vegas, but the city they loved and wrote about so compellingly has changed almost beyond recognition, and will keep on doing so. Its latest metamorphosis is a startling one: high-rise density oriented toward pedestrians. Is this urbanism drag, or can CityCenter successfully bring traditional ideas about the civic realm to the most car-oriented place in the country? Sam Lubell checks in.
This year, AN's annual roundup of new developments in California seeks out the sites where most of the state's density is forming: mixed-use projects within commercial corridors.
