But the urban environment brings people in droves. The thing I will agree with you on is the large floorplate is not something I'm a fan of, as I prefer really tall buildings over short beefy buildings, but it still gets a pretty dense amount of people in there. The walls could be whatever they want it to be. Vegas does some interesting things with some of their casino designs. Hell Miami has straight up neon decorated art deco casinos that are really cool.
Do you think the Vegas Strip is “urban”?
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov
