Unbuilt Las Vegas: Imaging Failed Dreams

Unbuilt Las Vegas: Imaging Failed Dreams — 2018

An architect’s unbuilt projects are sometimes more interesting than the ones that are built -- perhaps because they survive as the unadulterated image of the architect’s design unblemished by the client, actual construction and renovations, and aging. This exhibit, curated by Peter Michel, highlights a number of proposals created by Las Vegas architects. These unbuilt projects are proposals that went beyond an outlandish illustration, (although they may contain outlandish illustrations) to actual and sometimes elaborate design drawings. The architects from whose collections this exhibit draws are Martin Stern, Jr., Homer Rissman, and Gary Guy Wilson. Thanks are due to architecture students Tyler Stanger and Jimmy Chang who discovered these designs while processing these collections. The exhibit will be on display on the third floor of Lied Library through the Spring 2018 semester.
