Crile Building and Parking Garage, Cleveland Clinic

Cesar Pelli & Associates
1985




Front facade

Named for the founder of the Cleveland Clinic, D. George Crile, this building is a more recent addition to the campus of the clinic. See additional views of Dennis L. Jones' sculpture in the park in front of the building.
 

Views from the side from the adjacent parking lot

At fourteen stories, it has a dramatic stepped back skyline identity. See also Pelli's Key Tower in Cleveland for another striking profile.
 

Covered bridges from the parking garage--see below as well

These passageways are important for patients and visitors, given Cleveland's harsh winters.
 

Front facade

A three-story atrium provides natural light at the entry.
 

Views of the Parking Garage

This 1500 car facility has a striking glass stairway tower at the northwest corner. Covered bridges allow protected access to other parts of the clinic.
