Peter B. Lewis Building

It's not done yet -- and it's an obvious choice -- but the new Frank Gehry-designed building at Case Western Reserve University is going to be extremely cool. All sweeping curves and tilted angles, the building will house the Weatherhead School of Management. Gehry is the preeminent architect working today, and anything with his name on it does not come cheap. The building, 60 percent of it bankrolled by insurance magnate Peter B. Lewis, will cost some $63 million. It's worth it. There is only one problem with the structure: Plunked down in the middle of Case Western's campus, it's not exactly accessible to everyone. Perhaps a portion of those millions can go to send each Clevelander a postcard of the city's new landmark.
