Architecture, Las Vegas, Freshwater, Crisis
"The situation in Las Vegas is startling. The population has continued to grow without restraint in almost disregard of the ongoing drought diminishing the Colorado River and the lakes it supplies. The age old saying, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas,” has made its way into the attitude towards water consumption. There is a careless concern towards the limited supply of fresh water in the Great Basin region. Exploring new ways to provide water for this growing demand will not only help Vegas and the Southwest region of the States, but areas across the globe in similar drought situations might potentially benefit from this model."
