    20. 24. Modern urban landscapes (like Las Vagas) need words to convey their meanings. Buildings can represent their meanings in two basic ways: Duck vs. Decorated Shed
    21. 25. The Duck is a building that is its sign. Meaning and symbol are one. The sign and the building are not separate but the building itself represents its meaning. (The term comes from a poultry shop in the shape of a duck) Duck

    25. 29. The Decorated Shed is a building where the sign is separate and the meaning is applied via a sign. Meaning is contained in the sign and the architecture itself becomes unimportant. The same building could be a church or a casino, it depends only on the sign.
