Mountains Edge Park

Las Vegas, Nevada

Dramatically providing a gateway to the desert-edge of Las Vegas, this project combines symbolism with outdoor activity. Composed of four hoops, this climber abstracts a loomy vista of mountains and references the rich red soils of the American West, where earth is bounded by an enormous sky. Two rings with backs like are rotated inwards to embrace a defined outdoor room ringed with seating, while the two outer rings, without platforms, frame the site and stand like triumphal arches over paved paths into the parklands beyond.eyond.
