    [1] CityCenter Las Vegas is the first Urban-themed project of its kind in the city of themed hotel/casinos. CityCenter was designed to be an Urban District with its own mix of uses. The Office of James Burnett contributed to design+documentation for CityCenter and led project-wide coordination+collaboration, design presentations, sustainability targets+construction administration.

    [2] For arguments sake, the issue of Las Vegas will have to be foregone if this project is to be critically assessed. Givien CityCenters context within Las Vegas, this project was the first development in the city to respond to Las Vegas needs for mixed-use urban development. CityCenter targets High-density residential/retail/entertainment/ and recreational development.

    [3] THe landscape portion of this site covers a $300 million/LEED Gold project. Landscape typologies include Perimeter plantings, on-structure, off-structure, and indoor plantings. Transportation typologies include light rail, roeads and streets, parking structures, sidewalks, pedestrian paths and bridges, and airport shuttles.

    [4] CityCenter has seen a steady increase in success since its creation 8 years ago. Condominium residences have sold to High-end targets, even throughout the housing bubble crisis. All structures and typologies function at their intended capacity, except for the cirque du soleil theatre which is only open during performances. Due to the extreme typecast development of this project, each structure may only function at its intended use and may not be easily adapted for other uses. Extraneous uses may be adapted, but given CityCenters residents and clientelle, intended programs are unlikely to change.

    [5] Economically, CityCenter is not likely to fail. The project is backed by the MGM/Mirage Design group, an organization of unfathomable economic backing and value. However, the VEER towers condo units are advertised as being sold for less than their replacement cost. This has been done in an effort to broaden CityCenters target tennant groups.

    Camden Yards/Oriole Park POPULOUS+RTKLBaltimore, MD

    Oriole Park is the main feature of the Camden Yards Sports Complex. This baseball stadium is commonly referred to as Camden Yards. Camden Yards was the first single-sport stadium of its kind. Before its completion in 1992, baseball games were held in multi-sport, rectangular, symmetrical stadiums. Camden Yards was also unique in deriving its form from the surrounding landscape. The asymmetrical form of Baltimores streets translates into the stadium and the baseball field itself. The adjacent B&O Rail Warehouse was also recycled to be included in the stadium design. Camden Yards reflects the brick material used on the Rail Warehouse. The warehouse also houses groud floor retail, team offices and a team clubhouse.

    While Camden Yards is the first baseball-only stadium of its kind, the stadium suffers from single-use. In 1995, Pope John Paul II celebrated mass at the stadium, however this was 1 of only 2 times Camden Yards hosted an event other than baseball. The stadium could easily be adapted to support other uses, however its downtown context allows for extraneous uses in other Baltimore facilities such as The M&T Bank Football Stadium. The buildings and spaces surounding Camden Yards accomodate a multitude of uses. The promenade the runs between Camden Yards and the B&O Warehouse hosts the annual Baltimore Marathon as well as farmers markets and baseball memorabilia fairs.
