Urbanizing the Mojave Desert: Las Vegas

Urbanizing the Mojave Desert: Las Vegas


Huber, Nicole and Ralph Stern

Cl. Berlin, 2008

Book ID: 77368

Presents neither a modernist nor a postmodernist view of the city and its environment. The text and images do not project ideals of urban development, nor do they solve social and environmental problems. Rather, they present a hybrid landscape shaped and reshaped by practices of everyday urbanization for a city now characterized as the "first" city of the 21st century. They offer a "third site," exposing the complex but often interstitial spaces of everyday production and consumption tied to physical and virtual place making as well as contemporary local and global investment.
