The Fondation Louis Vuitton was opened to the public on October 27th, 2014. With its stunning architecture a hallmark of 21st century design, this exceptional building has become a symbol of the cultural eminence of France.
The amazing architecture of Frank Gehry
The renowned architect Frank Gehry, an innovative visionary, has made a great contribution to the cultural and artistic history of France. It began with sketches and models, and the end result is this daring and iconic realisation of a dream. The design is amazing, stimulating the imagination of anyone who gazes upon it. The architect wanted to evoke the feel of a sailing ship amidst the greenery, and he has certainly succeeded. After assurances that the design would fit in perfectly with its verdant surroundings, the steel skeleton of the building arose in 2011. By the spring of 2014, this towering achievement was completed. Now a unique and creative masterpiece situated in the Bois de Boulogne awaits your visit, offering a variety of artistic events to brighten your summer agenda.
A new platform for the promotion of artistic creation
Since its opening, the Louis Vuitton Foundation has hosted various cultural activities, including musical concerts, retrospectives, presentations and exhibitions.
