Fondation Louis Vuiiton, Paris, France
The Fondation Louis Vuitton is an art museum and cultural centre that opened in 2014. It is situated in Bois de Boulogne, a stones throw to the Jardin d’Acclimation in Paris. The designer Frank Gehry took inspiration from late 19th century glass and garden architecture to create a unique contemporary building which forms 12 sails—each one unique.
