A museum with a daring architecture
The building designed for the Louis Vuitton Foundation by the American architect Frank Gehry – born in 1929 in Toronto – merges bold vision and technological innovation. Born of the 2001 meeting between Bernard Arnault, chairman and CEO of the luxury group LVMH, and Frank Gehry, the building opened to the public on 27 October 2014. It is made up of an envelope of twelve sails formed of 3,600 curved glass panels fixed to an assembly of 19,000 sheets of Ductal (white fibre concrete). Dedicated to contemporary art, the museum sits like a ship on a pond in the natural environment of the Jardin d’Acclimatation.
