While in Las Vegas I had the opportunity to take some night time photography of some Frank Gehry Architecture. One of my favorite architects, this building was designed by him and became the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.
Though his architecture is different it is a work of art and I have this love for unique architecture. In order to get there, I ordered a taxi to take me and the taxi driver was totally clueless on why I wanted to photograph this building. I’m just a big fan and Love Frank Gehry architecture.
Architect Frank Gehry says he wanted a swirling stainless steel structure he designed for Las Vegas to be unique – to stand out from what he called “the cacophony” of high-rise casinos and condos forming the spine of Sin City’s sprawl.
Getting his first look at the nearly complete Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, he declared himself satisfied.
“It took my breath away,” he said. “I like the way it fits. I wasn’t trying to compete with the chaos around it.”
“I mean, some people may think it’s over the top,” he added. “I don’t think so.” And as far as Im concerned it’s LOVE at first sight. Frank Gehry – you are a a big fan of mine. I love your work. It is very different and that’s what makes it unique.
