美国,拉斯维加斯,Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo脑健康中心/盖里

几个星期前,archdaily 介绍了盖里(Frank Gehry)的最新项目。位于拉斯维加斯的Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo脑健康中心。该中心由“保持金钱活跃”基金会(Keep Memory Alive)支持,计划使之成为美国的最新科研和科学信息的基地,以治疗Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington ’s等脑疾病,同时也关注预防、早期诊断和科普。

在过去的介绍中,我们简要介绍了整个项目,现在,摄影师Matthew Carbone给我们带来来详细的照片。

该中心包括3个主要的空间。

给病人使用的医疗研究建筑是简单,功能性的内部空间和外部空间一样,由一系列轻微旋转的块体组成。

在医疗研究建筑和高高的外表皮是不锈钢的生命活动中心之间有一条带屋顶的过道。过道处给人们提供了享受拉斯维加斯气候的凳子,同时又避免太阳直接照射。那里有小型的咖啡,可以体验东面的花园的反射。

生命活动中心是该项目最吸引人的部分。它也是最让人迷惑的。生命活动中心是容纳所有事件和偶然的空间。从中发现的事件可以在医疗和研究楼中进行进一步研究。其室内的普通照明和LED照明的戏剧性效果遍及室内,室外和穿过拉斯维加斯的高速公路。


A few weeks ago we introduced you one of the latest built projects by Frank Gehry, the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas. The center is supported by Keep Memory Alive, and it is planned to become a national resource for the most current research and scientific information for the treatment of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington ’s Diseases, and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) as well as focusing on prevention, early detection and education.

On our previous feature we got a glimpse of the project, which at first sight might look like just another Gehry project. And now, thanks to these new photos by Matthew Carbone, we can get a better look at it.

The center features three main spaces:

- Medical building for patient care and research. Featuring simple, functional interiors and a lego like exterior of slightly disorderly blocks.

- A breezeway between the medical building and the higher profile stainless steel Life Activity Center. The breezeway provides a shaded seated area to enjoy the Las Vegas weather while avoiding direct sunlight. There is also a small cafe and it is method to experiencing the reflection garden to the east.

- The Life Activity Center - this is the portion of the project that has and will receive most of the attention. It is also the most misunderstood. Patients are not treated in the space, nor do they ever really interact with it except for the facade. The LAC is simply an event space meant to host all sorts of events and occasions. Profits from these events help fund additional research in the medical building. The interior features normal lighting and also LED lights that can provide dramatic lighting both for the interior and for those seeing the LAC from the exterior or the high profile cross roads in Las Vegas.
