In a period of only a decade, Macau has overtaken Las Vegas as the world’s new gambling capital. This book highlights the effects of this development in Macau, and raises questions about cultural identity, economic development, architecture and urban life.
The fluorescent thematic colors applied throughout the book design and illustration captures the catchy, kitschy and exaggerated architectural and urbanistic expression of this casino city, the sea wave pattern appeared pays a subtle tribute to Macau's unique Portuguese style sidewalk pavement, adding a taste of history to the illustations.
