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 type of book could be defined as an early retrospective publication of a working architect on the architectural avant-garde. Unlike the traditional monograph which collects and focuses on a discreet body of work from a period of time, these books prefer to collect and frame the process and thought that animate the firm&rsquo;s approach, often through speculative and projective work.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150058678/between-full-time-teaching-and-their-journal-project-medium-office-does-it-all Between Full-Time Teaching, and Their Journal, Project, Medium Office Does it All Mackenzie Goldberg 2018-04-09T09:00:00-04:00 >2018-04-06T20:13:23-04:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/a3/a3f60si79eoi1c0j.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p><a href="http://www.medium-office.net/" target="_blank">Medium Office</a> is an architecture practice based in Los Angeles and New York.
