Cincinnati 1993–99

Gehry's laboratory building provides an animated welcome at the main entrance to the campus for the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Although the brick cladding (unusual in Gehry's work) is a link to the staid university buildings nearby, the tilting and bulging forms demonstrate the architect's ability to coax unexpected results from even the most conservative materials. The sense of a building in constant movement is magnified by the roofline's angled planes and the pronounced multistory windows that provide views of the activity inside. State-of-the-art labs are organized along the building's north-south axis; offices occupy the smaller east-west axis. At the center of the cruciform plan, large skylights flood the central atrium, which includes meeting areas for staff.
