Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health



If you were in Las Vegas at World Market recently, you probably drove past this building. We all marveled at its design and heard it was some kind of doctor's office specializing in the brain. We recommend you read Contract magazine's article, Splashy and Sustainable: Gehry Partners design a medical research facility in Las Vegas.
Larry Ruvo, a Nevada entrepreneur who lost his father to Alzheimer’s, formed an alliance with a major medical institution and founded the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. He then persuaded Frank Gehry, who had previously refused to build in Las Vegas, to design a facility that would create a sense of place and purpose. “I wanted to use his celebrity to help find a cure for a disease while generating a sense of excitement,” says Ruvo.
