  Frank Gehry's new building in Las Vegas for Eyesore of the Month by Kunstler  

 A perennial favorite here at EOTM, architect Frank Gehry poses in front of his latest tortured building, the Las Vegas branch of the Cleveland Clinic's Lou Ruvo Brain Health building, a real masterpiece of irony, insofar as it seems to say, "...this is your brain on Frank Gehry...." If I had a problem with my brain, I would not be reassured arriving at this place. The implicit sadism is impressive.

Interesting side note: Lou Ruvo was a liquor distributor. He got a building with the D.T's.
