    Downtown Summerlin

    By combining the natural desert character with a

    contemporary landscape language, the design for

    Downtown Summerlin strives for innovation while

    avoiding hopelessly mundane desert clichés. The

    design draws upon the desert as a visual source for

    form, materials, colors, and textures. By distilling

    the surrounding Red Rock Canyon into its simplest

    attributes—desert floor, canyon wall, and open sky—a

    landscape framework was created for the project’s

    horizontal, vertical, and overhead surfaces.

    Downtown Summerlin succeeds by providing a

    landscape that reflects its natural surroundings while

    remaining autonomous from them.
