Las Vegas's New Sphere


New York Times - "Las Vegas and Its Big, Big Ambitions"

"This shape-shifting desert city is in the middle of a reinvention that involves sports stadiums, Formula 1 and the Sphere: a 360-foot-tall, high-tech, traffic-stopping amphitheater clad in 1.2 million LED screens."


“The Sphere will define Vegas architecture,” said Brian Alvarez, who goes by Paco, a former city cultural commissioner and tour guide. “It’s not a themed building like some of the other spots on the Strip. It’s on par with the Sydney Opera House or the Eiffel Tower for becoming a unique city icon.”
