LOUIS VUITTON FOUNDATION PARIS

Please go to this thread for discussion, thank you: PARIS | Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation | Frank Gehry | 46m | 2008-2013 | U/C


Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation in a Building Designed by Frank Gehry










The birth of this Foundation is in line with the 15-year commitment of LVMH and Louis Vuitton to promote culture, heritage and contemporary creation, especially through 26 exhibits sponsored by the Group in France.

The Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation gives a new dimension to this approach and will be sited in the Jardin d'Acclimatation, an exceptional Paris location.

The site characterized by its universal calling will be designed by Frank Gehry, the world-renowned architect and author of many exceptional projects including the famous Guggenheim Museum of Bilbao and the DZ Bank Building in Berlin.

Frank Gehry: "I am enthusiastic about designing a magnificent vessel in Paris that will symbolize France's devotion to culture".

The architectural project

One of the most imaginative designs by Frank Gehry. Like a vessel among the trees, open to nature, the building imagined by Frank Gehry expresses the spirit of the perpetually evolving Foundation and marks a new phase in the architect's style. It is designed to be permanently reinvented, in step with its exhibits and special events. In osmosis with the environment, it embodies respiration between inner and outer space.

These dynamics will carry into the very gardens that surround the building thanks to educational activities and the participation of artists.

The Jardin d'Acclimatation: an exceptional site
At the heart of the Bois de Boulogne, the Jardin d'Acclimatation is a familiar fixture of Parisian life. From the time its doors were opened under the Second Empire, the garden has served as a place of discovery and wonder.

With the support of the City of Paris, the Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation has founded a strikingly visible, international center for the arts, adding a major architectural statement to the French capital. Located at the Northern end of the Bois de Boulogne, Frank Gehry's building rises from its natural and urban environment as if by magic, harmoniously blending into the established balance between the park, the garden, the river, the skies and the city.




Construction should start in 2008 and end in late 2009

Gorgeous looking design. But does Paris really need another art museum?

The renders of this look fantastic but the actual model of it looks like someones just grabbed a handful of rubbish out of a bin.

To give you guys an idea on its location, this splendid Foundation will stand where the 4 cranes are, right in the heart of the Bois de Boulogne. It's gonna look great at night (nice lighting scheme planned), and even more with La Défense in the background...

I read that this project was stopped by protesters earlier this year? Has it proceeded now or is it still in the courts?

@ Skymantle

Hi dude, thanks for being interested in this major project. To answer your question, just know that the construction was halted last january owing to an old man (one of those usual 'pains in the ass') who had managed to find some pitiful 'weakness' in the planning permission. Eventually, work has resumed 3 months later following a judgment in Courts. The story is not over yet though as there's a final act to come with the appeal's judment late 2011. Meanwhile, works are coming along nicely since late april & are getting more & more exciting. I doubt that the appeal will question the construction as the Foundation has a strong political support. Whatever, to be continued!
