Rendez-vous in the Louis Vuitton Fondation 8 Avenue du Mahatma Gandhi 75016 Paris fr

Opened in October 2014, the Louis Vuitton Fondation is a private cultural initiative dedicated to art and artists. 

Commissioned by Bernard Arnault, the building was designed by the Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry. Tucked away in the Jardin d’Acclimatation, the cloud-shaped glass building emerges from the northern edge of the Bois de Boulogne in Paris.

The monument consists of galleries divided between permanent collections, temporary exhibitions, and artists’ commissions. The space also comprises an auditorium designed for multi-disciplinary performances and events. Large terraces accessible throughout the museum beckon with stunning views of Paris and of the vast green expanse of the Jardin d’Acclimatation, the inspiration for Gehry’s transparent glass structure.

The Fondation’s purpose is to support art and creation, and to promote its national and international outreach by welcoming all audiences. The museum’s collections and cultural programs will continue the tradition of artistic and creative movements of the 20th and 21st centuries.
