This hotel, and it’s sibling, have some great lines and optical trickery going on. At night, they don’t look a thing like the other hotels on the Las Vegas strip. They look much smaller than they really are—the curves hide the true mass. Even if you see both of the hotels in your field of vision, their size is diminished by the curvatures and the scale (every two floors) which the horizontal lines have been used. In the Vegas context, they are alien compared to nearly every other building in the city. In the middle of so many gigantic Italian inspired boxes all over the Strip, these buildings represent a counter point of sleek modernism. At night, from across the Strip, they look like titanium monoliths (duoliths?). In the daytime, the copper tone of the glass skin isn’t so alien.
Daily affirmation: Lean into it.
