The renowned American architect has designed a clinic for the investigation of degenerative mental illness clearly refers to the building’s contents: research on the brain, a dual and complex entity that develops between the rational and the irrational. The Lou Ruvo Cleveland Clinicis a leading center for research on degenerative brain diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or Huntington’s disease. Frank Gehry, Who had refused on numerous occasions to design projects for the city of Las Vegas, agreed this time by a personal commitment. The wife of one of his best friends had suffered from the disease known architect Hurrington and accepted the job of Cliveland Clinic in exchange for this disease should be included in the list of investigations. And it was. In a clear allusion to the hemispheres of the brain structure, the architect has designed the clinical center as a dual entity consisting of two buildings, one housing the more rational medical and research functions, and other ways with the label typical Gehry has the area of public events at the clinic. The two buildings are connected by an open space that makes the transition between the two aesthetic conceptions. The north wing of the clinic, which represents the rational part of our mind, is an orthogonal building comprising offices, patient rooms and dedicated space for research. It is structured as a set of white boxes stacked pure geometric form and design “orthodox.” The south building, however, is a stainless steel sculptural volume that follows the trail of one of the best known works of the architect. Referring to the most creative and unpredictable in the brain, this wing brings together all the public activities of the clinic. This building can be rented for all types of events and occasions.
