The Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health is located on a prominent “gateway” site of the 61 acre Symphony Park development in downtown Las Vegas at the corner of Grand Central Parkway and Bonneville Avenue.

The center is intended to provide facilities that bridge all aspects of patient care, research, and education, which include an outpatient clinic, a research clinic,  neuro-imaging suites, a reference library, community space, a multi-purpose event/banquet center, a catering kitchen, as well as office space for Keep Memory Alive.The research facilities, clinical facilities, and offices are located within a four-story block that has been articulated as a series of offset rectangular shapes in white plaster and glass.  While not in the immediate view of the project from the corner of the site, this is the actual front of the building serving as employee, patient and public entrance. The more public building uses are detached from the medical facilities across a dramatic covered trellis courtyard near the corner of the site.

These program functions are entered via an exterior breezeway through the medical office building.  The Keep Memory Alive Event Center is contained within an expressive metal and glass form that is articulated as a curvilinear metal façade and roof with punched-window/skylight openings.  Public functions held in the Event Center serve to generate revenue for Keep Memory Alive, Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health and the campus medical mission as a whole. The Keep Memory Alive Event Center is flanked by simple blocks of the Kitchen and Community Space, which are ancillary functions of the Event Center.
