192 pages. Casinos represent the height of architectural grandiosity. Spun from the fantasies of the millions of tourists who flood to Vegas, Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun, and resort spots around the world each year, their designs are extravagant and enormous and hugely successful. Casino Design showcases the most fantastic examples from the United States and abroad of what has come to be called entertainment architecture. Breathtaking photographs accompany descriptive captions that explain what makes these design marvels work and why they’ll keep us coming back for more.
