Modern Architecture in Las Vegas

Architecture in Las Vegas is a remarkable mixture of excellent designed buildings, unscrupulous copies of world famous landmarks and buildings in unrestrained neo styles.
Today three in my opinion excellent designed sky-scraping hotel combinations.

◙ The main picture shows the Elara (formally Planet Hollywood Towers), a Hilton Grand Vacations Hotel and timeshare building of 52-story. The $660 million project opened in December 2009 and was designed by Architect Gerald B. Koi of Morris Architects. In 2017, Huitt-Zollars announces that Morris Architects will be changing its name to Huitt-Zollars.

◙ The first workshop shows the buildings of the Aria Resort and Casino. Aria consists of two curved glass and steel high rise towers adjoined at the centre. It opened on December 16, 2009 as a joint venture between MGM Resorts International and Infinity World Development. At 370,000 m2 and 180 m. in height, it is the largest and tallest structure at City Centre.
The architectural design of Aria was conducted by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects. César Pelli, founder of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, is an Argentine American architect who has designed some of the world's tallest buildings and other major urban landmarks. Some of his most notable contributions include the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and the World Financial Centre in New York City.

◙ The second workshop shows Vdara Hotel & Spa is a 150,000 m2 condo-hotel and spa located within the City Centre complex across from Aria Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Vdara opened on December 1, 2009
Vdara's 57-story, 176 m tower houses 1,495 suites.
Vdara was designed by Rafael Vinoly of RV Architecture

I add the dark frame to the picture to give the posts a screen format of 1920x1080 pixels
The idea is that, if you use the links in the text, you have a full screen image of the picture with the photo in the centre of a dark screen.
This works with the browsers and screens I use, but I’m not sure that everybody will have the same result.
