Fifty years after the Strip was heralded as the epitome of suburbization in Learning From Las Vegas, with buildings hiding behind neon signs and parking lots, it has become a place with landscaped sidewalks and active storefronts, a reflection of America’s urban renaissance.
This lecture tells the story of how Las Vegas developers surfed waves of social, cultural and economic change to build casinos so compelling they actually convinced vacationers to the Mojave Desert. From exploiting Disneyland to the atom bomb to sexual revolution to “green” building, the Strip mirrored America as a whole. (In English)
