Frank Gehry
1997-99



The Albert H. Vontz Center for Molecular Studies, a neurological sciences and cancer research laboratory, consists of 150,000 square feet with three floors of lab space, offices, lobby, and lecture hall. It is sited on 3 1/2 acres in the southwest part of the Medical Center Campus (East Campus) on the corner of Martin Luther King Drive and Eden Avenue. Built of red brick, it still has curved walls, skewed windows, sloping roof lines, and a sculptural look--all characteristic of the mature Gehry's style (a la the Guggenheim in Bilbao).
