Project Description

The Lou Ruvo clinic for Alzheimer's and Huntington's disease research was created to stand out even in Last Vegas: an orthagonal four-story structure draped and wrapped with a mountainous metal-clad skin, faced in shingled panels and punctured with a grid of windows. The voluminous structure—which serves as a revenue-generating event space as well as a space for patient programs—stands at the back of an orthogonal, four-story working structure that serves as a clinic, research center, and Ruvo’s nonprofit Keep Memory Alive foundation headquarters. The structure is composed of two distinct buildings united by a steel trellis which creates an outdoor patio. A breezeway through the base of the clinic leads to its entrance and out to the courtyard and the activity center beyond. The end result is a vaulting, cathedral-like space with swooping lines and deeply coffered windows.
