Las Vegas Rock

MGM THE PARK

 LAS VEGAS,NV 

The Park, MGM Resort’s dynamic outdoor dining and entertainment district, is a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas Strip. The goal for the outdoor area was to create a space where stunning desert landscapes and cutting-edge design work in harmony. Las Vegas Rock’s metaquartzite was chosen for the project, and as one of the prolific building elements of The Park, the material measures up to the project’s intricate sustainability requirements that stretch far beyond the standard. The metaquartzite’s vivid strata variations introduce colors that are characteristic of the southwestern landscape visible from Las Vegas Boulevard, and reminiscent of some of Nevada’s most iconic natural landmarks. The pieces produced for The Park are giant, crystal-like planters that contain the native flora that bring the desert to bloom in the heart of The Strip. The giant crystal-like planters feature multi-dimensional surfaces that are made of 596 different pieces, all of which are windswept so no two are identical. "Once the crystal planter concept was in place, the !Melk Landscape Architecture & Urban Design team, located in NewYork, NY, scoured options for the perfect building blocks," said Jeremy Adams, vice president of operations for Las Vegas Rock, located in Jean, NV. "The team sought material that was not only environmentally appropriate, but would beautifully complement the surrounding desert landscape.

Mitchell Park Library

 Palo Alto, California

The Mitchell Park Library is 56,332 square feet of new construction on approximately 3.4 acres in a community park in Palo Alto, California. The approximately 40,000-square foot library is the newest and largest of six libraries in the Palo Alto City Library system. Recognizing the potential for a more sustainable service model, the city of Palo Alto’s Library and Community Services departments developed an innovative and robust “omni-channel” vision of enhanced service in a shared destination for civic, cultural, educational, social, and recreational experiences. To support this new vision, the city sought to replace its library and community center buildings with a new joint-use facility. Appropriateness, quality, and durability of materials were key. This project was designed to serve the community for generations.
