Alan Hess and Sim van der Ryn

This is a busy week! It's Architecture Week, and the Las Vegas American Institute of Architects has many wonderful activities to partake of. Those of us that attended the celebration Monday night in honor of the 2007 Architecture Las Vegas publication were also treated to tours of Las Vegas mid-century modern exemplar The Morelli House, restored by the Junior League and moved to its current location at Bridger and 9th from the old Desert Inn golf course. The lecture by noted architectural writer Alan Hess was excellent. The DVD of the lecture, courtesy of the AIA and Randy Hale, will be available in the Architecture Studies Library soon. (Unfortunately we do not have film of Mayor Oscar Goodman or Representative Shelley Berkley, who were also there, and made some spirited honorary presentations to the Las Vegas AIA and the Junior League.) Another huge event kicks off on Friday with a 1:30 lecture in the Architecture Studies Library by well-known architect and sustainability advocate Sim van der Ryn, followed by a 24-hour Town Hall during which 10 teams will address the 10 Principles of Livability in the Las Vegas context. Presentations of their findings and suggestions are scheduled for noon Saturday, in the Architecture Studies Library. More information at
