That year the first floor of Rand Hall was renovated and the second floor was repartitioned for the Center for Research in Education.

An emergency stair tower was added to the eastern edge of the building and a three foot wide unobstructed corridor from one side of the building to the other.

Redlines seeks to understand the pedagogical and design frameworks that shape this process.</p> <p>In this session, we look at <a href="https://archinect.com/firms/cover/29902179/clog" target="_blank">CLOG</a>, which was formed in 2011 by Kyle May, Julia van den Hout, PLAYLAB INC., Jacob Reidel, and Human Wu.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150064029/casey-hughes-wants-to-create-work-that-is-simultaneously-intellectually-ambitious-and-scrappy Casey Hughes Wants to Create Work That is Simultaneously Intellectually Ambitious and Scrappy Mackenzie Goldberg 2018-05-14T12:57:00-04:00 >2018-05-17T15:14:28-04:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/e7/e7wegiatqknxuy3y.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p>Casey Hughes has made a name for himself by building into the famous hills of Los Angeles. His <a href="https://chughes.net/" target="_blank">eponymous firm</a>&mdash;started by his desire to push against both the academic world of architecture as well as the development-oriented one&mdash;specializes in intellectually ambitious residential projects, especially those located on some of the city's tricky hillside lots.&nbsp;</p> <p>For this week's <a href="https://archinect.com/features/tag/845829/small-studio-snapshots" target="_blank">Small Studio Snapshot</a>, Hughes talks about carving out a niche for himself while allowing room for design exploration.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150063907/from-the-ground-up-frank-gehry From the Ground Up: Frank Gehry Anthony Morey 2018-05-11T09:00:00-04:00 >2018-05-13T01:44:39-04:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/ut/ut9gjet0ezve9pvz.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p><strong><a href="https://archinect.com/features/tag/1071676/from-the-ground-up" target="_blank">From the Ground Up</a>&nbsp;</strong>is a series on Archinect focused on discovering the early stages &amp; signs of history's most prolific architects. Starting from the beginning allows us to understand the long journey architecture takes in even the most formative of hands and the often, surprising shifts that occur on its journey. These early projects grant us a glimpse into the early, naive, ambitious&mdash;and at points, rough&mdash;edges of soon to be architectural masters.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150063702/redesigning-las-vegas-entertainment-architecture-for-the-experience-economy Redesigning Las Vegas: Entertainment Architecture for the Experience Economy Hannah Wood 2018-05-10T10:09:00-04:00 >2018-05-11T09:31:03-04:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/1v/1v7txeos7y8ngsd8.gif" border="0" /><p>While Las Vegas is as popular as ever, visitors are spending less time on the casino floor. According to a <a href="https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-04-05/report-las-vegas-draws-more-millennial-first-time-visitors" target="_blank">recent report</a>, gambling time now totals 1.9 hours during an entire stay in Vegas, an hour less than in 2015 and over two hours less than twenty years ago. This change is being driven almost entirely by the younger generation who are spending just 8.5 percent of their income on gambling compared to the <a href="http://intraweb.stockton.edu/eyos/business/content/docs/LIGHT/Millenial%20Entertainment%20Preferences%20-%20FINAL%20REPORT.pdf" target="_blank">23.5% spent by their parents</a>. The American entertainment industry has therefore made it a top priority to grab, and keep, the attention of the millennial market.</p> <p>What does a less gambling-centric future mean for cities like Las Vegas? This month&rsquo;s feature takes you on a virtual tour of The Strip to investigate a selection of new experience-driven, &lsquo;Instagram-ready&rsquo; architecture projects commissioned by the top entertainment conglomerates.
