I have just spent four stimulating and informative days at the Las Vegas Market. I attended eight different seminars and lectures on subjects ranging from "The World of Design in the year 2020" to "How to Build a Business Warren Buffet would buy". It was also interesting to meet and hear the views of such renown designers as Charlotte Moss, Nina Campbell and Vicente Wolf.
The World Market Center itself was quite an experience, consisting of three buildings, two 16 floors high. The architecture is a combination of sweeping curves and sharp edges, but still quite cohesive.
In contrast, across the street is the Lou Ruvo Brain Center, that looks like it just melted down, it can be seen in the pictures above reflected from the glass walls of the World Market. Frank Gehry really went wild when he designed this one.
