Next Generation Gaming Resort

Unbuilt Design Award Submission

This luxurious $3 Billion Resort would have featured approximately 3,000 hotel suites (5-star luxury, club and resort), along with a significant amount of convention and meeting room space, high end retail shops, and a large entertainment venue.

Choice Becomes Architecture.
This project presented a paradigm shift in which common practice was challenged. It's a revolution, a transformation, a metamorphosis of a resort’s development and implementation. This resort was designed to respond to the clientele as much as it was imagined to inspire reaction from those experiencing the architecture.

The Concept: Expect a Miracle.
This project maximized the opportunity for excitement and variable experiences by providing accessible, controllable, affectable environment.

Littlewood’s Law: a mathemetician’s miscellany:
You can expect a miracle every thirty-five days. A miracle is defined as an extraordinary event of special significance at a frequency of one in a million A human is alert for eight hours a day, while alert she/he can experience one thing per second : Over 1,008,000 encounters in 35 days.

Can architecture increase opportunity for the miraculous? Yes.
By focusing on the experience of the space/place the architecture will have millions of many extraordinary moments.
