The most extreme, absurd and outrageous destination in the US draws more than 37 million visitors a year, and not all of them are gamblers: some come for weddings, others for conventions, still others for family breaks and many more for weekend-long parties. The city's famous hotel-casino resorts continue to get grande, with new restaurants boosting the town's reputation as a gastronome's delight, high-budget shows wowing sell-out crowds, and buzzing nightclubs catering to millions of visiting hedonists.

"Flowers in the Desert": Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas 1993-2012 explores the intersection of contemporary Las Vegas entertainment and Cirque du Soleil’s style of “new American Circus.” Cirque du Soleil has changed the expectations of spectacle theatre on the Las Vegas strip by constantly striving to provide an experience for all audience members that is entertaining and awe inspiring regardless of their background and native language. Through wordless, exemplary production standards, Cirque du Soleil has raised the bar for performance art in the Las Vegas desert. This text is an examination of the phenomenon of the entertainment company, Cirque du Soleil, from its inception as a small band of street performers to the entertainment machine it is today with the primary focus upon the years 1993 – 2012, the time which encompasses Cirque’s arrival in “sin city” through today. Cirque’s opening in Las Vegas has changed the nature of Las Vegas spectacle entertainment and Las Vegas has changed Cirque’s performance standards. This symbiotic relationship between the entity and its locale, has changed the nature of highly technological productions forever.

"Learning from Las Vegas: The Forgotten Symbolism of Architectural Form" created a healthy controversy on its appearance in 1972, calling for architects to be more receptive to the tastes and values of "common" people and less immodest in their erections of "heroic," self-aggrandizing monuments. This revision includes the full texts of Part I of the original, on the Las Vegas strip, and Part II, "Ugly and Ordinary Architecture, or the Decorated Shed," a generalization from the findings of the first part on symbolism in architecture and the iconography of urban sprawl. (The final part of the first edition, on the architectural work of the firm Venturi and Rauch, is not included in the revision.) The new paperback edition has a smaller format, fewer pictures, and a considerably lower price than the original. There are an added preface by Scott Brown and a bibliography of writings by the members of Venturi and Rauch and about the firm's work.
