A very late CONGRATULATIONS, Songbird, on winning the gold for this outstanding capture of another Frank Gehry masterwork.
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.

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.
