Perhaps you’ve heard of Learning from Las Vegas, a 1972 tome on design lessons gleaned from the Strip by architects Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour. (Not to mention Air Guitar by Las Vegas-based cult art critic Dave Hickey.) We decided it was time for us to conduct our own Vegas investigation of sorts: this past weekend, Dalilah headed to Las Vegas for a few days to explore the city from a design vantage.
You can follow in her footsteps: we’ve partnered with LasVegas.com to award one reader with a $1,000 gift certificate toward his or her own Las Vegas summer getawayâ€”good for use at the hundreds of hotels, restaurants, and entertainment venues on LasVegas.com. All you have to do is enter the Remodelista in Vegas contest.
