Under The Cone

This structure, visible from several miles away, has fascinated me from day one. It wasn’t here when I moved here in 2013 if I recall correctly. What fascinates me is the physics involved in what makes this beautiful structure stand tall. It has withstood a few years of our frequent Wind Storms as I and others call them.

I have seen sixty mph gusts blast around my twenty-five-year-old home, and I’ll tell you something, this place can make some fairly loud creaking noises! The rafters can be heard shifting in the attic. Yikes! Palm fronds fall on the city streets, there’s all manner of rubbish blowing around everywhere too. So much fun, eh?!!

The windstorms seem to be more frequent in the cooler months. Visit the Downtown Summerlin website.

  1. Interesting design. Do you by chance have a shot of the structure from further away? I can’t get a handle on what the building really looks like.
