Gehry Building in Las Vegas
Spent an afternoon at the Frank Gehry building in Las Vegas. I had wanted to see one of these unusual, warped buildings for some time. This building houses the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health and is an active medical facility. I gather this one is not as large as some of the others designed by Gehry but fascinating all the same.
We had an amazing variation of clouds and and sky during our short time there. At sunset (seen in the lead image) the clouds had left and the sky lit up in a crazy pink color.
The panels that clad the building (stainless steel, I imagine) reflect the surrounding light so the look is changing constantly. This building has another interesting feature: At night the interior is lit with colored lights so the windows are illuminated with one color after another. Quite striking to see.
