Louis Vuitton Foundation: an architectural masterpiece
Whatever your taste, the first thing that will strike you when entering the Fondation Louis Vuitton Foundation is the beauty and complexity of its architecture. This design masterpiece, unveiled in 2014, is the work of the famous American architect Frank Gehry.
The Foundation building is nestled in the Jardin d´Acclimatation of the Bois de Boulogne. It is an imposing glass and steel structure that gives the impression of a sailboat tossed in the wind. The museum is dedicated to contemporary art and has 11 galleries spread over 3 floors.
