Mark Weber recently won the AIA Nevada 2012 "People's Choice Award" in the category of "Unbuilt Design Awards". His project, "Las Vegas Art Museum: A New Home", addresses the need for a large art venue in Las Vegas that would generate regular patronage, link the general public and the local art community, and serve as a gateway to both the Arts District and downtown. Mr. Weber received his Master of Architecture from UNLV in 2011 and designed the project as part of his Masters of Architecture course work. Mr. Weber is a Civil Engineer in the Las Vegas, Nevada office.
