DHA Designs collaborated with WET Enterprises in the development of the famous volcano that opened in 1989. At the time, the resort had a Polynesian theme and DHA worked closely with WET Enterprises to incorporate theatrical lighting into the water show. The Mirage was built by developer Steve Wynn and opened in 1989.
A few years later DHA Designs were commissioned to create a lighting scheme for the Buccaneer Bay show at the front of the property. Together with the Jerde Partnership and Lifescapes International, theatrical techniques were adapted for use in a harsh exterior environment. Treasure Island was opened by Mirage Resorts in 1993 under the direction of Steve Wynn.
