Wynn in Sin City

Wired has a great article about Vegas hotel and casino developer Steve Wynn and his latest project, Wynn Las Vegas.

Wynn claims the $2.7 billion resort that took 30 months to erect is the most complex structure ever built. Yes, ever. Before you accuse him of hyperbole, it is worth noting the complexities of the structure that includes a 5.8 million sq foot complex, a mountain that weighs as much as one of the former Twin Towers, a 100 hundred foot waterfall, landscaping that includes 100 year old trees that weigh as much as 200 hundred tons, a lake with 4,400 LED lamps, the largest hard-wired HDTV network ever, and a system of radio-frequency identification gambling chips that helps prevent counterfeiting.

Ok, so it is still hyperbole, but not as much as you initially thought I bet.

It's actually a handsome building, with a landscaped serenity that is a significant change from the flaming volcano and jumping fountain flair of Wynn's previous resorts.
