creative houses

Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, designed by architect Frank Gehry, consists of the architects signature steel forms. This leading research centre for degenerative brain diseases costs $100 million and consists of two wings connected by an open courtyard. In the ordinary northern part of the building is a research center and hospital, in the creative south part – the life activity center. In the architectural sense, the two parts of the building differ from each other, but they act like two parts of the whole. The life activity center can be rented out for parties, weddings and special occasions with the proceeds going to fund the center’s research.

    What a wonderful architecture it is. Every one should take care of their brain health.

    This makes me freak out. What would someone with a brain disorder think. Maybe this is the way the world looks through their eyes.

    This design, especially with so much metal, is quite austere. Doesn’t seem welcoming to patients at all. This is a prime example of an egoistic starchitect creating something with no consideration of the context or anything other than his selfish whims. An architectural abortion.

    crazy… who approved that budget?

    People with brain disorders heading to this building must run in fear from it.

      Or it might lead healthy people to wonder if they HAVE a degenerative brain disorder.

    I’m quite fond of such designs, looking so interesting and impressive, outrospective and so unusual. Gehry has made a name for such creations and I do respect him, creating such building that looks like a crumpled piece of paper.

    Isn’t this what happened to the house at the end of the first Poltergeist movie?

    I think Frank Gehry does not change much. Interesting anyway
