ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health located in Las Vegas, Nevada, which was designed by architect Frank Gehry. It says that the complex is basically made up of two radically different buildings connected by a partially clad steel trellis. According to the author, Gehry created an environment that does not evoke a medical setting inside the clinic. The other features of the center and the stance of beverage entrepreneur Larry Ruvo on architecture are also discussed.
