For Hispanic Heritage month, LiA is organizing a forum centered around art, language, cuisine and architecture. The forum will include talks by: artist Luisa Duarte (luisa-duarte.com) and Silvia Chicas with Antena Houston (antenantena.org). Followed by a lecture by Brian Zamora, Senior Associate (Gehry Partners). Mr. Zamora, an integral member and lead project designer of
the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. Frank Gehry was initially skeptical of working in Las Vegas when asked to design the Cleveland Clinic building. That changed once he met the enig- matic Larry Ruvo and understood his passion for doing better in brain related healthcare. Through this relationship, Huntington’s disease was added to the Ruvo Center’s program mission. Mr. Gehry is deeply involved with supporting research for Hunting- ton’s disease. There will also be a presentation of three addi- tional Gehry projects which will focus on the cladding solution of these by the “block/brickwork pattern” design aesthetics and the different materials used brick, metal, and glass.
