The Associated Press goes on a tour of Frank Gehry's new Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas, a research facility for neurocognitive diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's that'll have a grand opening in May. Alcohol distributor Ruvo, whose father suffered Alzheimer, tells the AP: "Frank Gehry allowed me to do what I wanted to do," Ruvo said, "and that is to use his celebrity to help find a cure for a disease. Now we have an international consortium to achieve that goal." Meanwhile, the Las Vegas Weekly also went on a tour of the new project with Gehry.
