"Paris Dreams, City Scenes: Joel Berman and the Themed Resort" is a new exhibit curated by Peter Michel in the Flo Mlynarczyk Gallery on the third floor of Lied Library, pulling from the collection of Bergman Walls & Associates and the Paris design drawings.
Joel Bergman was one of the premier resort and hotel architects of his age. He worked for Martin Stern Jr. as project architect for the International Hotel (Las Vegas Hilton) and the original MGM Grand Hotel. He worked for Steve Wynn on the Golden Nugget (Atlantic City and Las Vegas), Treasure Island, and the Mirage. He designed for Caesars Palace and the Trump Tower in Las Vegas. He established his own firm, Bergman Walls, in 1993 with his associate Scott Walls. In 2008 the firm, Bergman Walls & Associates, was taken over by Joel’s sons, Leonard and George. Leonard Bergman is now the President and CEO.
