Commissioned by Bernard Arnault, American architect Frank Gehry designed la Fondation Louis Vuitton. It is erected at the outer edge of the Bois de Boulogne in the Jardin d’Acclimatation. With its architectural curves, lines and transparency, this building is a fine showcase for contemporary art.

Works from the collection, in addition to themed exhibitions or studies and multi-discipline events will be at the forefront of the Foundation’s offerings.
