If you are visiting Paris this fall, make sure you mark this down as one of your must-visit places. Opening its doors to the public from 27 October 2014 is the Fondation Louis Vuitton, nestled in the Jardin d’Acclimatation west of central Paris. The Frank Gehry-designed building houses exhibition galleries dedicated to the permanent collection, temporary exhibitions and artists’ commissions. There will also be a flexible auditorium for the presentation of multi-disciplinary performances and events.
The building, designed to resemble a cloud of glass, offers unique panoramic views of Paris and the lush greenery of the Jardin d’Acclimatation. To celebrate its opening, the Fondation Louis Vuitton will present an exhibition showcasing the architectural project created by Frank Gehry for the foundation. The exhibition will be presented in dialogue with the first European retrospective of Frank Gehry’s work presented by the Centre Pompidou, from October 2014.
