Vegas, Nebraska-Style


Still grinding out the last of summer projects, particularly longer form writing. In the meantime, here's a photo I took a few years back, of a rent-to-own outfit on O Street in Lincoln, Nebraska. Have been pondering Venturi and Scott Brown's Learning From Las Vegas (1967) in the context of contemporary developments.

Gorgeous sign. Would you be willing to share a hi-res photo I could print?

Skye: not sure I can actually find the source file. I tried a while ago and failed. Think I took this in 2003, but I'm not sure. Will try!
