According to Charles Renfro, DS+R partner and lead designer of the Drew, the team's design approach was inspired by the multiple ecologies of Las Vegas itself, including the Mojave Desert, Las Vegas' early adoption of modern architecture, and the city's embrace of spectacle. The Drew eyes to weave these seemingly contradictory conditions into a new environment.
