Master plan and conceptual ideation for a large swath of undulating, urbanized desert land. The available parcels existing topographic depressions are enhanced and are turned into conceptual dimples or "a soft down pillow" to accommodate the requested program. A reimagining of the typical resort and vacation experience, we propose getting lost and found, low density villages, natural intrusions, chance encounters, lost weekends, hotels with no corridors, neighborhoods, imperfect perfection.
