Wacky Windows
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Wacky Windows
Wacky Windows
The jawdroppingly bizarre Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health officially the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, opened on July 13, 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada that is operated by the Cleveland Clinic and was designed by world-renowned architect, Frank Gehry of Gehry Partners in Santa Monica, California. He also designed the Disney Concert Hall in LA. This is a detail of the Wacky Windows and unusual shape under construction. Its quite an amazing feat of architecture and engineering.

I believe you have posted images of this building before, and this is exactly what I thought of when I saw the monthly theme for June. This is a perfect (and very well done) entry into this month's contest. Great capture, Songbird!

There was a documentary about him a year or so ago. Fascinating look at the step-by-step process he uses to teach the next generation's architects.
