Gehry Brings the Crumpled Metallic Kleenex to Vegas

New, 38 comments

Vegas! Vegas! The LA Weekly reviews CityCenter (sounds like they love it) and also writes of Frank Gehry's contribution to Sin City architecture. Meet the Gehry-designed Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, an Alzheimer's treatment and research facility close to downtown Vegas. The $74 million project (under construction and pictured) is "supported by curved beams that branch up the walls and across the 75-foot-tall roof," should be completed in April, and is giving us some major Bilbao/Disney Hall/Lady Gaga's hat flashbacks.
