This building is one of the latest build projects signed by Frank Gehry, and is located in Las Vegas. The center is funded and supported by Keep Memory Alive, and it’s supposed to become a national resource for the most current research and scientific information for the treatment of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington ’s Diseases, and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) as well as focusing on prevention, early detection and education. The complete name of the project is Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, and from the images you can see that is nothing ordinary about it, as we were accustomed to Gehry’s projects.

The center hosts these 3 main spaces:
1. Medical building for patient care and research. Featuring simple, functional interiors and a lego like exterior of slightly disorderly blocks.
This infirmary is located inside the playground of the highschool Diderot d’Alembert in Aubervilliers – Paris in the suburbs. The building is separated in two, by both its fonctions and acces. On one side you can get to the infirmary and the toilets, on the other to the office.
The separation also appears in the colors used on each side of the building, green and red. The inside light comes through the facades by pixalated openings. A gradient color links both of the side visualy. A banch has been added on the facade folowing the smooth angles. Regarding the intimacy required by this kind of programm, we’ve choosen to get the natural light form a skydome.

The new university hospital is not a traditional institutional construction; it is a friendly, informal place with open, well-structured surroundings which present a welcoming aspect to patients and their families.
Akershus University Hospital has been designed to emphasize security and clarity in experientially rich surroundings, where everyday functions and well-known materials are integrated into the hospital’s structure.
