Frank Owen Gehry (born Ephraim Owen Goldberg) finally did it: he designed the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas after years of refusing to do something in Vegas.

81 year old Gehry, who designed the titanium-covered Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles, Experience Music Project in Seattle, Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis, the Dancing House in Prague and Düsseldorf’s Medienhafen built the latest piece of art with a steel structure in his unique dramatic design.

Mannerism is back – and Gehry is genius.
