Repositioning Chinatown Las Vegas : theming authenticity and theory of boring architecture by James Shen( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

China's surging economy compels cities worldwide to employ an extreme form of reverse colonization. A race is in progress to build the world's largest Chinatown. St. Petersburg and Dubai's are under construction and London is talking about it. Las Vegas belatedly joins the competition. The city already boasts the fist planned Chinatown - although it's just a strip mall. Learning from the success of its Chinatown Plaza, I propose an instant "Worlds' largest Chinatown" in collaboration with the newly formed International Chinatown Development Corporation. Situated in the capital of theming, Chinatown Las Vegas offers something different. The Paris Hotel Casino doesn't come with Parisians, but Chinatown Las Vegas comes with the Chinese. How can Chinatown exploit its themed people to market its notorious otherness? The success of current architectural practices of them- ing rests on its ability to mask the banal with signifiers of the exotic. The effects of this "shock and awe" approach, however, are short lived. My project offers an alternative; I begin with the banal to not end there. Instead of designing every aspect of the new Chinatown, I will populate the site with ready-mades; "carpet theming" by copy-paste. Preserving all existing buildings on the site, multistory Platforms (parking structures) fill current parking lots. Chinatown Signage (Chinatown Plaza roof multiplied) blankets the site, pinned to the ground by Cores (infrastructure towers). With: 3 components 1 square mile 1 manual (25 examples) 20,000 Chinese an infrastructure for guerrilla programming is deployed. The architect fastens the parts as the themed population begins the occupation

[The Jack Benny program( Visual )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Jack explains that it is because of long shots that he manages to look so good on television year after year; in close-up he is covered with wrinkles. Dennis comes out with a palm tree because Jack never gives him any scenery, and sings 'Cocktails for two.' Don does the State Farm Car Insurance commercial with the yodelling owner of a Swiss chalet. In the sketch, Jack remembers how he found Dennis and hired him to sing on his radio show. After hearing a recording of Dennis' voice, incomplete because Dennis had run out of quarters for the machine, Jack sets out to find him, going from one job to another at which Dennis has been fired. He finally locates him working in the kitchen of a Chinese restaurant
