Fondation Louis Vuitton

On our last day in Paris a couple of weekend ago, we went to the Fondation Louis Vuitton, a museum and creative space to showcase LVMH’s art collection and hold fashion shows.  Designed by Frank Gehry, the space is a wonderfully gigantic establishment that resembles an oversized sailboat.  It is  something to marvel at from afar as well as inside.

Exploring all the inner corners of the museum reminded me of last year’s trip to Casa Batllo in Barcelona where I was just enraptured by Gaudi’s design philosophies and how he executed them as he designed the house.  In the Fondation Louis Vuitton, one gets a sense that Frank Gehry wanted to create a spectacular urban oasis that houses modern exhibition rooms with a rather dramatic yet calming waterfall that frames the museum’s entrance.

Here are some of the photos I took while we were there…
