My first reaction to the posted picture is ... Las Vegas?

Paul Malo's use of the word "camp" certainly would have described Las Vega "architecture?" when I was there many, many years ago. Many of the buildings I would have seen are gone and have been replaced with whatever is there now.

The word "Camp" as Paul uses it comes from the late 1960's if I recall my history correctly.

Architecture of the 1960's:

Paul Rudolph's School of Art and Architecture, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, USA 1963

James Stirling and James Gowan's Engineering Laboratories, Leicester University 1963

World Trade Center 1967

Duty calls - I may add more later.
