In the history of architecture, the cities of Rome and Las Vegas contrast radically with each other: while Rome, the former capital of the Roman Empire, is regarded as ancient, elegant and complex, Las Vegas, the “Sin City”, is perceived as shrill, vulgar and artificial. Yet both cities are historically and contemporarily located at the intersection of power and games.
