he concept for this project was to create a cultural edge along the I-15 corridor that engaged Project City Center. The edge became an extension of the canyon like forms of the nine proposed residential towers, and would extend toward the south creating a large wall that would begin to blur and separate I-15 from the strip and new residential district.
The idea became to create a series of events and images along this wall that would begin to create spaces walkable and pleasurable for pedestrians. The wall will become a canyon in itself and provide a series of dynamic spaces serving as pedestrian filters. People experiencing the canyon would perceive The Strip in a completely different fashion. At times the canyon opens and creates viewing corridors to The Strip, and other spaces create a sense of enclosure and self reflection, while also teaching desert sustainability.
The goal of this project is to create a sense of place on The Strip. Through a conceptual frame work, The Canyon on the west corridor of The Strip can turn a blurred overlooked edge into a noteworthy pedestrian friendly sustainable place.
