"Dreaming the Skyline" is a digital collection of drawings, sketches and photographs that capture the history of resort architecture in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe and Atlantic City–and its wider impact on the world. The collection highlights the work of two renowned Las Vegas architects: Martin Stern, who designed the Hilton International and the original MGM Grand, now Bally’s, and Homer Rissman, whose designs include the Flamingo towers and the original Circus Circus tent. "Dreaming the Skyline" provides easy online access to the rich architectural collections of UNLV Libraries Special Collections.
