Architect Frank Gehry has unveiled his design for a new Alzheimer's research center in Las Vegas.
The building consists a swooping trellis made of Gehry's signature contorted steel.
The trellis is anchored by a five-story boxy office building.
The building will house the Lou Ruvo Alzheimer's Institute, a proposed center for the research and treatment of neurological disorders funded by Las Vegas liquor distributor Larry Ruvo.
Backers are hoping the building also will become the city's first architectural icon that doesn't house slot machines.
