This is The Peter Lewis building on the campus of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. It is home to the Graduate School of Business. It, even to the amateur student of architecture, is the work of Frank Gehry. I have never been able to figure out if I like his work or not. Regardless, they certainly challenge the status quo and are highly provocative. His work covers the globe. I would have liked to have a better picture of the building but a torrential downpour prevented it. Peter Lewis is the founder of The Progressive Insurance Company. All these notables are not the real story behind the building, school, and photo. No, the interesting story behind the story is they saw fit to bestow a degree upon me many moons ago. There you have it, just a little slice of me.
