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.
