Is Saragossa to become Europe's Las Vegas ?

Chantal Savioz is delighted with the "construction fever" that has taken a hold of the Spanish town of Saragossa, where there will be an international exhibition all about water and sustainable development in June. "The big names of architecture are fighting to build constructions that will mark the modernity of the exhibition. ... Meanwhile Saragossa is working on other projects. The town of Goya is dreaming of a future in a Spain which is all too often turned towards the Mediterranean. ... The famous winding Ebro River will become the icon of a provincial town which has launched into the 21st century. Forget the theme of water and sustainable development! The next project due to shake up the Aragon region is far from ecological. It will involve a group of casinos and a golf course in the neighbouring desert. You can already hear enthusiastic cries hailing 'Europe's Las Vegas'. Saragossa is thirsting for a future."
