    Did you know these buildings were built for World's Fairs?

    The World’s Fair has long been an event where architects have an opportunity to offer up an idealized version of the future. On April 15, 1900 the Exposition Universelle opened in Paris, and the City of Light dazzled with bold new structures, such as the Grand Palais, that remain breathtaking feats of design. AD looks back at the innovative towers, museums, and residences built as architectural beacons for some of the most memorable expositions.

    5 quiet and sophisticated Las Vegas hotels

    When you think of Las Vegas, noisy casinos, clubs, smoking, crowds and loud music all come to mind. In the past few years, an increasing number of non-casino hotels have opened, catering to business travelers or leisure travelers seeking a peaceful retreat. According to the NY Times, tourists are coming to Las Vegas, but the amount they’re spending on gambling is down. From the Mandarin Oriental to the Vdara Hotel & Space, many of these luxury hotels are smaller than their non-casino counterparts, which offers a more personalized experience. Visitors to these quiet, high-end hotels tend to spend their time in Las Vegas going to shops, eating at upscale restaurants, shopping and relaxing by the pool. Most of the quiet hotels are located on or near the strip, giving visitors easy access to activities but also an escape from the strip’s sensory overload. I’ve rounded up a list of the top 5 non-casino hotels.
