Friday Boss: Casino architect Paul Steelman
You have almost certainly never heard of Paul Steelman, yet he is one of the most successful architects in his field in the world. It is just that his field is rather narrow: Mr Steelman specialises in designing giant casino complexes.
He says the world of casino architecture is an unforgiving one: "My father told me you are going to be an old architect when you see your first building torn down," Mr Steelman told me rather wistfully when we met in his practice headquarters which is, naturally enough, in Las Vegas.
